American War Veterans Not Receiving Enough Care For PTSD

individual psychotherapy for PTSD in female veterans.

The advocates for the veterans have on the other hand stated that in some areas say they receive complaints about the shortage of staff and long waits to get care. Rep. Michael Michaud (D-Maine), a member of the House Veterans' Affairs Committee, had stated the case of an Iraq veteran who gets 30 minutes of treatment a month for PTSD, explaining that, “That's not enough.”

Paul Rieckhoff, executive director of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America said, “By and large, what we're hearing is that the services aren't there like they should be. While Ira Katz, a mental health official for the VA, stating that their services include one-on-one counselling, group therapy and medication, said that there is no single line of treatment for PTSD as the cases are usually very different.

Meanwhile they have been conflicting reports from various clinics, Laurie Harkness said the community-based VA mental health clinic she directs in West Haven, Conn, has no waiting period, “We get people in right away.” Larry Scott, editor of http://vawatchdog.org , said mental health clinics in Portland, Ore, are just not up to the mark with fewer staff members to treat a growing number of veterans.

Shad Meshad, the president of the National Veterans Foundation, has said that the latest troops returning are now facing a more serious trauma. He said that they are “just young bombs like we were 30 or 35 years ago,” but now “you have PTSD layered by multiple tour of duty.”
