Veteran talking with counselor about military sexual trauma

The short answer is: Yes.

First known as “shell shock” or “operational fatigue”, our society has come a long way in understanding the full impact of what is now known as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a mental health condition affecting the lives of millions of veterans.
