Commentary: Caring for Returning Veterans: Meeting Mental Health Needs

Terence M. Keane, PhD (Chair), et al

Since 2001, 2.3 million Americans have served in a war zone, and over half of those who return are seeking health care where their veteran status may go undetected. This Commentary features a discussion among the experts about the challenges that returning veterans face in receiving comprehensive mental and medical health care, how clinicians can better understand and treat these patients, and resources available to family members, peers, employers, and communities to support the needs of returning veterans.
