Why this service is important
As long as there have been conflicts and wars, there have been soldiers who make the ultimate sacrifice. We salute those soldiers and their families for giving us the freedom we enjoy today. Unfortunately, the road ahead isn’t always clear for those soldiers who make it home. Many of these brave warriors carry visible physical scars that will remain with them for a lifetime. Others suffer in silence from invisible emotional scars that can go unrecognized and untreated for years.
- 39% of veterans from current conflicts suffer from alcohol abuse.
- More than 20% of veterans with PTSD also suffer from an addiction or dependence on drugs or alcohol.
- SAMHSA reports that at least half of the returning service members who need treatment for mental health struggles like PTSD look for help, but few receive adequate care.
- Veterans with problems abusing drugs or alcohol are over twice as likely to die from suicide compared to veterans overall.
- The VA reports that 2 out of every 10 veterans with PTSD has a co-occurring substance use disorder. Conversely, one out of every three veterans seeking treatment for substance abuse has PTSD.
POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER (PTSD)
- “50% of those with PTSD do not seek treatment, of those 50% that do only ½ of them get ‘minimally adequate treatment’.” Rand.org
- Greater than 30% of all Vietnam veterans will suffer from PTSD at some point in their life.
- In 2014, of the 2.7 million American veterans of the Iraqi and Afghanistan wars, 20% have service-related PTSD and/or depression. Military counselors indicate that the number may be much higher.
- 9% of our returning soldiers suffer from PTSD immediately upon return from deployment. This increases to 31% after 1 year from the date of returning home.
- It is possible that PTSD can go undiagnosed and unrecognized for up to 30 years after deployment.
- Male veterans 55 years of age and older have the highest risk for suicide.
- Pentagon report shows sharp rise in military sexual assaults. The troubling statistics also show that the majority – about – 70 percent – still do not officially report such incidents.
- Pentagon estimates that about 20,500 service members across the military branches – about 13,000 women and 7,500 men – were sexually assaulted in the 2018 fiscal year.
- 1 in 4 females and 1 in 100 male veterans who use the VA screen positive for military sexual trauma (MST).
- 40% of homeless female veterans have faced MST.
- 83% of victims did not report the crime.
DEPRESSION / SUICIDE
- In 2014, 8,000 US veterans committed suicide while an additional 11,000 attempted. The risk of suicide increases as age increases.
- The US military finished 2018 with a troubling, sad statistic; It experienced the highest number of suicides among active-duty personnel in at least six years
- In 2016, the suicide rate was 1.5 times greater for veterans than for non-veteran adults.
- The VA noted that 70% of veterans who lost their lives due to suicide had not been connected to healthcare through the VA. Access to evidence-based help from physicians, therapists, and addiction specialists can reduce the risk of suicide by treating underlying causes.
- 37,878 veterans experience homelessness.
- Veterans make up approximately 11% of all homeless adults.
- Vietnam and post-Vietnam eras are at the greatest risk of becoming homeless but veterans from more recent wars and conflicts are also affected.
- Veterans returning from deployments often face invisible wounds of war, including traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder, both of which correlate with homelessness.
