June is PTSD Awareness Month. Take the mystery out of PTSD: learn what it is, who is affected, and how treatment can help. Visit the National Center for PTSD web site for more information and to see a list of ways to help raise PTSD awareness. www.ptsd.va.gov/about/ptsd-awareness/index.asp #MarylandRecovery #PTSD #MentalHealth #MentalHealthAwareness #PTSDMonth #PTSDAwarenss #MentalIllness
If you are in crisis, please call 911, go to your nearest Emergency Room, or call the Veterans Crisis Line available 24/7 at 1-800-273-8255 (Spanish/Español 1-888-628-9454). Veterans press “1” after you call. You can also chat live online with a crisis counselor 24/7 by visiting the Veterans Crisis Line* website.
Search for burial locations of veterans and their family members in VA National Cemeteries, state veterans cemeteries, various other military and Department of Interior cemeteries, and for veterans buried in private cemeteries when the grave is marked with a government grave marker.
I was unaware of this program while my husband was being medically retired from service and wish I had known about it then so I hope this is reaching you sooner than me :) They provide: Monthly stipend, travel expenses, mental health services and counseling, comprehensive VA Caregiver training provided by Easter Seals, and respite care.
