We think it sucks that more Post 9/11 veterans have died by suicide than combat related fatalities. More than 20% of veterans experience severe consequences associated with PTSD that negatively impact every area of their lives. Less than half seek treatment for their condition. More than 1 in 3 women veterans experienced in-service sexual assault and suffer with PTSD. Consequently, there are more than 50,000 homeless veterans, rates of divorce for veterans with PTSD are two times greater than veterans without PTSD, and on average 22 veterans a day commit suicide. We make a real difference by providing direct support services focused on generating health promoting physiology and overcoming the negative consequences of traumatic stress.
