Approximately 71% of female military personnel develop PTSD due to sexual assault within the ranks. To address this issue, AEU has partnered with the WCA’s Healing Warriors program to provide assistance to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault who are connected to the military.
Since 2013 the WCA has provided specialized service to veterans and their families. Healing Warriors will continue to assist with safety planning, individualized case management, pro bono legal services, therapy, peer support groups and self-sufficiency to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault who are active military, veterans or connected to the military. Military clients may work with a therapist to help with anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Healing Warriors will also specialize in assisting military clients in navigating VA services and veteran-specific community resources. Active duty and retired service members, as well as their family members, are eligible for these services, all of which are free of charge.
The expanded services now available through the Healing Warriors programs will strive to provide behavioral health treatment and services within the program. This project will implement innovative therapies, expand peer support groups and provide staff training on principle treatment models.
At Ease USA supports active military, veterans and their families and loved ones with confidential, research-supported, cost-effective treatment for post-traumatic stress (PTSD) and related disorders.
At Ease USA currently serves Eastern and Central Nebraska but plans to serve even more individuals over time.
