Servicemen and women have always taken care of their physical health. In today’s world, mental health is just as important.
While military life can be rewarding, it is also difficult. According to a study conducted in 2014, 1 in 4 active duty members showed signs of a mental health condition. The mental health concerns of veterans are unique. Things you might have seen or experienced during your time in the military can affect your long term mental health, and make it difficult to transition to civilian life. Even veterans that have successfully transitioned may have lingering mental health concerns.
