- "When it comes to veteran mental health, there are some preconceived notions about what it means. After over a decade and a half of sustained combat operations and high operational tempo, the topic of veteran mental health has emerged into the public consciousness. Whether it is the significantly high suicide rate among veterans and active duty military service members, or the widespread misconceptions about the psychological impact of combat and military service, the way that the nation thinks and talks about veteran mental helath is critically important. This book is a collection of articles that first appeared on the Head Space and Timing blog, which can be found at www.veteranmentalhealth.com They range from reflections on how to raise accurate awareness about veteran mental health, both in the individual and in the community, to discussions about how to see veteran mental health as mental wellness instead of mental illness. Developing a greater understanding about the importance of the need for stable and positive veteran mental health can lead to a post-military life that all service members desire."
