schema:description"Too often American veterans return from combat and spiral into depression, anger and loneliness they can neither share nor tackle on their own. This guide seeks to aid our troubled, returning forces by dissecting the numerous mental health problems they face upon arriving stateside. The authors detail not only each issue's symptoms, but also discuss what treatments are available, and the best ways for veterans to access those treatments while readjusting to civilian life. In addition, the authors connect and explain many alarming trends, such as joblessness, poverty, and addiction, appearing in our nations's veteran population on a broader scale. Post-traumatic stress syndrome and struggles with anxiety affect far more than veterans themselves, as sobering phenomena like homelessness, suicide, domestic violence, and divorce too often become realities for those returning from war. This book is both a resource for struggling veterans and a useful tool for their loved ones or anyone looking for ways to support the veterans in their lives. -- From back cover."@en
