Military Support

Military Support

Many military members shy away from counseling because of the stigma attached to it as being weak, however, we know that seeking help is a sign of strength. All veterans may experience challenges, but women in the military face unique experiences from their male counterparts. Women face concerns related to gender inequality for career options, sexism from fellow service members, partner relationship issues, family planning concerns, and a higher risk for sexual trauma. These concerns can easily lead to various mental health disorders to include:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Intimate partner and domestic violence
  • Mood disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Substance abuse (using alcohol or drugs)
