Honoring our Veterans today and always

“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!

– Maya Angelou

Today across the nation, Americans are honoring war and military veterans for their service, bravery and loyalty. As SurroundHealth recognizes our vets, we would like to share a few useful resources that address the impact of war on veterans’ health on both a mental and physical level.

The following resources and more can be found on the SurroundHealth War & Veteran Health page.

  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder in Veterans– This is an archived webcast: This program will provide an overview of services currently offered by the New York State Division of Veterans’ Affairs, particularly as they relate to counseling and other veteran-awarded benefits. This program will also look at the clinical side of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. It will examine warning signs of PTSD, consider substance abuse related to PTSD, and discuss effective treatment for veteran’s struggling with PTSD.
  • Health Programs for Veterans– From the VA- Beyond the doctors and nurses who provide you with high-quality health care, VHA offers tools and information to help you reach your optimal health. Tools like My HealtheVet enable you to manage your medical priorities through an online prescription refill service, personal health journal, and links to Federal and VA benefits.
