If you or someone you love is struggling with the invisible wounds of military service, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), the Emory Healthcare Veterans Program is here to help. We offer free, expert care for post-9/11 veterans and service members living anywhere in the United States, regardless of discharge status.
Thousands of service members and veterans struggle with PTSD. They frequently resist seeking help because of negative ideas about PTSD or the fear of what others might think.
