NAMI Veteran’s Program
NAMI is proud to provide the following resources for everyone touched by military service. The people who are currently serving, those who have served and their families face unique stressos and need mental health information and treatment tailored to their needs. And yet, the mental health challenges faced by veterans, active-duty troops and their families—stigma, access to quality health information and innovative new treatments—are on the minds of military families and the rest of NAMI’s families.
Recent studies tell us that nearly a third of veterans who seek care through Veterans Administration (VA) health centers receive mental health diagnoses.With more and more soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with mental health concerns, NAMI recognizes the need for increased services for veterans and their families.Our Veterans Resources Center consolidates the most useful online resources, whether you are looking for information on Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, mental illness or how to obtain Veterans Administration (VA) benefits.
