Many veterans find themselves continuing to struggle with the aftereffects of severely stressful events (like combat, IED explosions, seeing comrades injured, or military sexual trauma). Some veterans may develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a result of such traumatic events. Our team understands the special issues of veterans who are dealing with the effects of such trauma. The PTSD Clinical Team (PCT) was created to help veterans feel more in control and increase satisfaction with their lives by working with them to effectively address these issues.

Specific treatment recommendations are tailored to the needs of individual veterans. Treatment may consist of a mix of educational group meetings, therapy groups, and individual therapy for handling the symptoms of stress disorders such as PTSD. Utilization of local resources (e.g., Vet Centers, Community Based Outpatient Clinics, or private psychotherapists) is a vital element in serving the veterans in areas geographically distant from VA Medical Centers.
