PTSD PROGRAMS

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop after someone experiences or witnesses a traumatic event. Traumatic events can include natural disasters, acts of violence, war, car accidents, or other life-threatening situations. PTSD can also develop in response to the sudden death of a loved one, or from long-term exposure to traumatic situations such as abuse.

We are Here to Help

There are a number of ways that a Veteran Service Organization (VSO) like Veterans Helping Veterans can help with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We help set up therapy and counseling sessions specifically designed to address the unique challenges and needs of veterans with PTSD. Support groups or other types of peer-to-peer support can be beneficial for veterans coping with PTSD and VHV can help you get the support you need.

In addition to these direct services, VHV also advocates on behalf of veterans with PTSD working to improve access to mental health care and other resources. It's worth noting that VSOs are just one of many resources available to veterans with PTSD. Other options may include VA hospitals and clinics, private therapy practices, and community-based organizations. It's important for veterans to explore all of their options and find the resources that best meet their needs.

Let us help you find the support channels you need to help treat your PTSD.
