Many new and/or lesser-known wellness and/or healing options are available for Veterans and their families who face the “invisible wounds of war” like PTSD and TBI, depression and anxiety.
Common methods for dealing with post combat related issues are the traditional “talk therapy” which can include individual and group counseling. In addition, sometimes medications are prescribed. While these are the most commonly used techniques, new healing options are emerging daily that are proving very beneficial.
