Mental illness can arise due to both genetic factors and stressful life events.1 Within this context, it would make sense that veterans, who are often exposed to combat and other dangerous and stress situations, would experience high rates of mental illness, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and substance abuse.

In this article, you will learn more about:

  • Retired service members’ struggle with depression.
  • Co-occurring substance abuse and other mental health disorders.
  • Substance abuse treatment and mental health assistance for veterans.
