During a career of service you put your life on the line for your country and for your fellow soldiers. And while you’re no longer actively serving in the military, the exposure to threats of violence and life and death situations can have an affect on your wellbeing months and even years afterwards.
Military service can understandably take a toll on your physical and mental health. If you suffer from the following symptoms, it’s important to seek help:
- Reoccurring nightmares
- Negative changes in beliefs and feelings
- Avoiding situations
- Feeling keyed up
If you’re feeling any of these symptoms, or are having thoughts of suicide seek help immediately. The Veterans Crisis Line offers confidential support, available 24/7 at 1-800-273-8255.
