Veteran health is something that should be on everyone’s minds. Veterans are people who provided services of protection to the United States. They worked through the military and helped protect everyone; it’s something that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
The problem is that veteran care in the United States isn’t always good. Veterans often come back to the United States with significant injuries, both mental and physical. Some include:
- Lost limbs
- Head and brain injuries
- Hearing loss
- Limited range of motion
- Gunshot or shrapnel wounds
Each of these injuries has the potential to heal, but veterans may find that they need support as they do so. For this reason, they may seek out disability benefits along with supplemental security income. The goal is to provide them with an income that supports them while allowing them to focus on their health.
Stress from combat and the separation between veterans and their families also causes mental health concerns. Some veterans develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other serious mental health diseases. For this reason, Social Security Disability (SSD) does recognize mental health disorders as a disability, and a diagnosis can be used to help someone struggling with their mental health.
