PTSD & Mental Health Articles & Links

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other mental health issues impact those who serve and their loved ones. PTSD may result in anxiety and depression.  PTSD and other mental health issues are not always as obvious as physical injuries. They can be challenging even for mental health professionals to recognize and diagnose. Often PTSD and other mental health issues do not appear immediately. Mental health issues and PTSD are very serious and frightening for soldiers and their loved ones. They are as real as any physical injuries.

MilitaryConnection.com is delighted to be working with an extraordinary organization, Give an Hour. GiveAnHour.org is a non-profit organization dedicated to meeting the mental health needs of our troops and their loved ones who are affected by mental health issues and Post Traumatic Stress Disorders. This organization has amassed a network of over 1700 mental healthcare professionals to offer pro bono treatment. 

The idea is for each mental health professional to donate one hour of treatment once a week to address mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, loss and grieving, the fears associated with having a loved one deploy or the adjustment to coming home.  Dr. Barbara Romberg is the founder of GiveAnHour.org. Her goal is to build a network of thousands of mental health professionals to serve the mental health needs of the military community.

MilitaryConnection.com is proud to partner with this noble organization to improve the quality of life for those who serve and their loved ones. We will be featuring articles and resources about PTSD and mental health issues.  Our goal is to become your “go-to” website for resources and information on the important issues and subjects that are important. MilitaryConnection.com is your one stop resource center for PTSD and mental health information and resources.
