I speak to veterans constantly about mental health.
I hear the same story all the time:
- They prescribed medications very quickly
- They recommended I go to group therapy
- The therapist I saw took notes, but didn’t recommend anything concrete for my life. And then I saw a different therapist
- I stopped taking the drugs, I hated feeling like a “zombie”
- I stopped going to therapy after I saw another new therapist
What do they think they’re doing?
