(Black PR Wire) As we approach Veterans Day, let's remember the immense sacrifices made by our military heroes and their families. November is dedicated to honoring and supporting these individuals, and it's crucial that we extend our support to their mental well-being as well. So, we invite you to join us in helping veterans receive the mental health support they deserve by sharing NAMI Homefront Mental Health Resources.
In 2020, 19.7% of U.S. veterans experienced a mental illness. That’s 3.9 million people. The transition from deployment and combat back to civilian life can bring forth a whirlwind of emotions and challenges. These experiences may fade with time, but it's essential that we provide the necessary support that promotes hope and healing.
Just like any community, veterans, service members, and their families often hesitate to prioritize their mental health due to the stigma surrounding it. It's time to change this narrative. Seeking help is a courageous act, a testament to strength and resilience.
NAMI Homefront Mental Health Resources are here to guide our heroes and their families on their journey to mental well-being. Their sacrifices deserve our unwavering support and understanding.
From managing stress, learning to recognize signs of crisis, and understanding treatments and therapies, to accessing federal, state, and local services, learning to communicate effectively, and identify coping skills, NAMI Homefront Mental Health Resources help guide our heroes and their families on their journey to mental well-being.
Share NAMI Homefront Mental Health resources with someone you know or encourage them to sign up to access these resources. These resources are available 24/7 and are offered for free. It's a small gesture but together, we can make a world of difference in the lives of those who've sacrificed so much for our safety and freedom.
