Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder – PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder (sometimes also referred to as post-traumatic stress syndrome) is prevalent in the Veteran community. A study published in August 2022 found that 67% of all Veterans with a service-connected injury also suffered from PTSD.

After witnessing or experiencing a traumatic or life-threatening event such as war, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault, people commonly have reactions such as upsetting memories of the event, intrusive thoughts, or trouble sleeping. If these symptoms do not go away, or if they get worse, you may be experiencing PTSD.

PTSD Treatment Information

VA offers disability compensation and healthcare for Veterans with a mental health disability caused by their military service, including PTSD. Additional resources for PTSD treatment can be found here.

The VA has also implemented the Veterans Crisis Line. If you are in immediate crisis, dial 988 and Press 1 for help.

Due to the difficulty discussing traumatic military events, some Veterans struggle to obtain service connection for PTSD. If you’ve received an unfavorable decision from VA, Bergmann & Moore may be able to help.
