Combat Veterans' Health
Veterans from multiple eras who kill in war are at increased risk for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), alcohol abuse, suicide, functional difficulties, and physical health challenges after returning home.
In current healthcare systems, a Veteran can receive PTSD evaluation and EBT without ever being asked about killing and its impact. Killing and its impact on the mental health and physical health of combat vets are critical to understand to improve patient care, physician/patient encounters, community-based education targeting combat vets.
CAAHDER is the only nonprofit that has community -based programming specifically combat vets.
