The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs reports that 20 service members and veterans die by suicide each day for a variety of reasons, ranging from coping with the effects of aging, flashbacks, isolation, chronic pain, traumatic brain injury, homelessness and PTSD to unaddressed chronic health conditions stemming from military service. Many veterans have underlying mental health conditions or substance use disorders aggravated by their military service which increases their risk.
PTSD is a disorder that causes an imbalance in the nervous system. It is a physiological response to a traumatic experience, not a reflection of the mental strength, professionalism, or willpower. Caring for those who are and have served our country requires a commitment to integrate service delivery and to coordinate resources for these individuals.
The Healing Our Military & Veterans program seeks the generous support of corporate sponsors, foundation grants and individual donations: Every $500,000 affords 1,000 military members and service veterans the opportunity to benefit from this life-changing program and destigmatize mental illness. Based on your support, these patriots can learn to master their nervous system and with the help of trauma professionals learn highly effective methods to clear up intrusive memories, flashbacks, and nightmares to bring it back into balance.
