Although society in general is starting to be more comfortable with the idea of getting help for mental illness, many veterans still struggle to admit that they need help. Being a part of the military, you see and experience a lot of traumatic things, but did you know that less than 35% of veterans with PTSD or traumatic brain injuries will pursue treatment from the VA? That’s how strong the stigma around mental illness is within the military! One organization, called At Ease USA,is working to provide veterans with a safe place to come in and receive help. Joining us is their founder, Scott Anderson.
At Ease USA supports active military, veterans and their families and loved ones with confidential, research-supported, cost-effective treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
