Abstract:

When service members return from conflicts abroad, some bring with them depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, substance use disorders, and other mental health issues that can affect their quality of life, their ability to function at home and on the job, and their relationships with family and friends. Many do not realize that they need help, or they hesitate to seek treatment because they fear that it will have negative repercussions on their careers. Without care, these service members and veterans may face lifelong challenges.
