• PTSD, TBI, and our Veterans

    One in five post 9/11 veterans came home with PTSD.

    Some staggering facts:

    • There have been 414,000 Wounded Warriors who suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) of all severities through 2019 (Depart of Defense).

    • 22% of all casualties from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan resulted from brain injuries.
    • About 20% of Veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan suffer the effects of PTSD in a given year.
    • Approximately 20 veterans commit suicide per day in America.
    • A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Psychiatry found that 20% of veterans with TBI reported suicidal thoughts.
    • A growing body of research suggests that stable housing may help reduce stress in individuals.

    Every Veteran Has a Story... Sometimes it's the wounds that are unseen that hurt the most.

    We take a stand for Veterans who stood for our freedom...We Want To Help! Unlike the physical wounds of war, these conditions remain invisible to other service members, to family members, and to society in general. Both of these conditions affect mood, thoughts, and behavior; yet these wounds often go unrecognized and unacknowledged.

    PTSD

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be described as a mental health condition that's triggered by a trauma. Whether experiencing it or seeing it. The symptoms include flashbacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, depression and confusion.

    About half of those that had met the criteria for PTSD ever consulted help from a physician or mental health professional.

     

     

    Traumatic Brain Injury

    Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can be described as exposure to a blast or brain injury.

     

    TBI can be the result of several different incidents. This can include falls off a moving vehicle, combat zones, or blasts nearby.
