In the wake of experiencing severe trauma or life-threatening event, many people (non-military & veterans) develop symptoms of Post-Traumatic Disorder (PTSD) also sometimes called shell shock or combat stress for veterans. These symptoms can range from severe depression, intrusive memories, avoidance, hopelessness, anxiety, panic attacks, bouts of moodiness and anger, drug and alcohol addiction, insomnia, flashbacks…to suicide.
Suicide is the 10th-leading cause of death in the United States, and Veteran suicide is a national concern. Roughly 22 veterans a day commit suicide nationwide, according to new data from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans experiencing post-traumatic stress after serving, PTSD Foundation of America states “less than 40 percent will seek treatment, and there are as many as 400,000 veterans battling PTSD.
There are many organizations and resources supporting Veterans with PTSD. In partnership with EE&T, we bring to you “The Heroe Program” a charitable golf program helping organizations raise much-needed funds to continue their efforts, assisting veterans seeking help.
