Mental health issues are on the rise across the United States. Fortunately, online therapy is making it easier than ever to connect with mental health professionals, and is helping to remove barriers to mental health services. This is particularly important when it comes to veterans.
Active duty military members and veterans experience a high rate of PTSD with as many as 34% suffering from this debilitating condition as well as other mental health issues, including addiction, anxiety, and depression. Additionally, veterans are two times more likely than civilians to commit suicide. It’s clear that more needs to be done to support veterans in order to ensure that they receive the care that they may desperately need.
OnlineTherapy.com recently published a new resource that looks into veteran mental health care. In their new resource, the OnlineTherapy team shares the most effective, affordable, and convenient online therapy services for veterans.
