Veterans face many challenges upon returning to civilian life.read more
Many experience difficulty adjusting to life at home because they experienced traumatic events while serving their country. Veterans often deal with conflict, pain, and isolation, and they are more likely to be diagnosed with psychiatric disorders than non-veterans. They are also less likely to have health insurance and more likely than non-veterans to commit suicide (13.5% compared to 7.9%), be homeless, less educated, and be much more likely to end up in prison than in prison non-veterans.
