Reintegration Services for Returning Veterans and Their Families
New York State is home to roughly 1.4 million veterans and an additional 30,000 to 50,000 veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are expected to return home to our state. The challenges facing some of our veterans and their families can be daunting, including physical injuries, mental health and substance use problems, homelessness and unemployment. One in three Iraq veterans will face serious psychological injury including depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or anxiety.
