The Veterans Advisory Council on mental health at the VA Medical Center encourages any veteran experiencing nightmares, flashbacks, hyper-vigilance or other symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder to seek services at his or her nearest VA health care facility.
Many veterans continue to needlessly suffer from PTSD. Some have looked for relief in the past but have not found the help they needed; others continue to try to simply "live with it." Help is available.
If you've participated in unsuccessful PTSD programs, things have changed. New evidence-based therapies go beyond the "coping skills" of the past. New medications relieve many of the symptoms. You, your family and your friends need not suffer from the effects of PTSD.
