- Currently, well over 2 million people are serving in the Active or Selected Reserve components of the United States military, around the country and around the world.
- With over 1.64 million deployments since 2001 and a continued presence in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas of conflict, the need for quality, culturally competent care for service members and their families has never been greater
- Some common military stressors include: high-risk occupation, mobility, authoritative work environment, impact of separation, high degree of living with uncertainty.
- For veterans returning home, this may be a period of mixed emotions. While potentially being a time of relief and reunion with loved ones, it is also a time of adjustment, and may bring about associated difficulties.
- Veterans may be especially vulnerable to post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and substance abuse.
