Veterans/Service Men and Women
First responders, law enforcement, and veterans are widely regarded as our nation’s heroes: they put their lives on the line daily to ensure our safety and freedom. But the stress and pressure of their positions often creates inner turmoil along with daily exterior battles. Untreated mental illness affects millions of Americans, with veterans facing their own specific needs for mental health care. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects one in ten veterans, and according to the National Strategy for Preventing Vet Suicide, approximately 20 American veterans commit suicide daily. Mental health conditions including PTSD along with the extreme pressure of the job are partially to blame for these harrowing statistics. Complete Behavioral Health is here to address the special mental health challenges and connect our veterans with life-saving support.
How we help
Complete Behavioral Health offers evidence-based treatment for veterans coping with PTSD and related mental health issues through individual psychiatric assistance, therapeutic care, and a variety of integrative therapies. While veterans often share similar experiences, we do not use a “one-size-fits-all” approach: our providers work with you to develop individualized plans to suit your needs. Scientific research methods are used to explore factors in your life that increase risk for mental health challenges and suicide, which we then use to introduce protective factors that serve as buffers against suicide risk. Our therapies:
- Develop positive coping skills
- Deepen connections to other people
- Give compelling reasons for living
- Increase a sense of purpose in life
National Strategy for Preventing Vet Suicide goes on to report that older veterans (over 50 years of age) make up 65 percent of veteran suicide rates. It is never too late—and always a good time—to seek help.
