Veterans are a population at higher risk for experiencing mental health issues such as suicide and trauma. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), veterans make up an estimated 18% of all deaths by suicide in the United States. This is a significant concern, as the suicide rate among veterans is 1.5 times higher than that of non-veterans.
One of the reasons for this increased risk is that veterans are more likely to have experienced traumatic events. These can include combat-related trauma, sexual trauma and military sexual trauma, experiences which can have a profound and lasting impact on an individual’s mental health and well-being.
Another reason for the higher risk of suicide among veterans is that they may have a harder time accessing mental health services. This can be due to a variety of factors, such as a lack of awareness of available services, stigma surrounding mental health issue or difficulty getting to appointments due to physical or financial barriers.
Rivendell of Arkansas offers mental health services to help veterans who are in crisis or at risk of suicide. These include crisis and suicide care and services for any individual who has served, as well as phone and in-person assessments, inpatient and outpatient medication management, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient therapy.
Our Trauma-Informed Care Can Help
It is important to note that veterans are not the only group that is at a higher risk of suicide and trauma. Other groups include first responders, healthcare workers and members of the LGBTQIA++ community.
Rivendell Behavioral Health provides trauma-informed care for those in need, and we can help you or your loved one, today.
