Once again the news is not good for our Veterans. Instead of providing the care they really need, all to often, Vets struggling with depression and PTSD, are given a prescription and sent on their way.
This USA Today story highlights the disturbing findings of a recent Rand Corp. study. Among other things they find “Just 30% of troops with depression and 54% with PTSD received appropriate care after they were deemed at risk of harming themselves”. The article goes on to emphasize how important ‘behavioral health care’ is in helping these men and women find a path the healing.
