More than “thank you for your service” - helping veterans struggling with mental health KYW Newsradio In Depth

    • News

People who serve in the military often go through traumatic experiences, or just have trouble adjusting to life back at home. The mental health issues they face are unique, and it can be hard to find someone who really understands what they’ve experienced - but we all can do more to help. The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at the University of Pennsylvania offers mental health services for post-9/11 veterans and their families. Clinic Director Dr. Leah Blain and Outreach Manager Pete Whitney - who’s a retired Army major - join us to explain what veterans deal with in and outside the military, why there’s a disconnect between our perceptions and the reality of the military, how veterans can get help, and what everyone can do to support our troops with actions, not just words.
