“60 Minutes” Spotlights VA Mental Health Treatment

Veterans Encouraged to seek VA Care.  

On Sunday, November 24, CBS News “60 Minutes” aired The War Within, a window into Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) therapies – such as Prolonged Exposure Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy – that VA professionals use to treat the Veterans we at Bergmann and Moore are privileged to serve.

Take a look – we hope this story and others will help encourage Veterans to seek the care they’ve earned and deserve.

VA Assistance is Available

For Veterans in crisis, VA operates the Veterans Crisis Line (1-800-273-8255, press 1), staffed by VA mental health professionals 24/7.  Since it was established in 2007, the employees at the Veterans Crisis Line have made more than 30,000 lifesaving rescues, the equivalent of two Army divisions.

Check out the Veterans Day HBO documentary #VeteransPress1, which spotlights the lifesaving work done each day by VA professionals who answer the call.
