can you help me?
Traumatic experiences whether it's combat related, sexual abuse or other life and death situations may result in TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) or other ailments. This oftentimes results in a behavior of isolation and solitude which leads a Veteran to misunderstand the causes that lead to stress, anxiety and depression. Left alone, the Veteran thinks that they cannot relate to anyone and further removes themselves from society.
The downward spiral, coupled with alcohol and substance abuse, strips away any ounce of dignity and renders the Veteran homeless and on the brink of suicide. You are not alone! Multiple Veteran Outreach programs have been established to assist Veterans to get back on their feet. The following are starting points to help Veterans "Stand Down" and get the help they need.
