The National Center for PTSD, through the Department of Veterans Affairs, has two sections or portals for help. One is for Vets Family and Friends and the other for Professionals. I can open either door .
As I have said in my blog, I am a daughter of a PTSD Vet. I am also a geriatric care manager who just included a chapter on the VA for Aging Vets in the 4th edition of Handbook of Geriatric Care Management. Dr. Len Kaye edited the chapter graciously.
I wanted the chapter added because as a GCM I know how hard it for professionals is to access VA care and unravel the many times cloaked VA services . As a daughter a PTSD Vet, whose Dad went untreated for 50 years, I know the magic of the VA in turning VA PTSD vets and their broken families around- and the work that desperately must to be done by the VA to save these vets and their fractured kin.
