How do we care for the growing population of young military veterans after they return from combat deployment? An answer to this question is not as simple as one might presume.

The question is : What is the Mental Health Industry going to do when the veterans put together the harm done to them from the mind drugs including anti depressants that destroyed their families, mind and see life?

Despite being medically unaffected by their battlefield experience, these young veterans will often not be able to reintegrate successfully due to a variety of social barriers. Lack of employment or educational opportunities, as well as stark cultural differences between civilian and military worlds, are only some of the obstacles that prevent happy and fulfilling lives after military service. A feeling of isolation often results from this, and veterans are frequently left feeling alienated from their friends and families.
This is just a few areas of what the veterans are 'adjusting' to now a days. Then they come home and are disillusioned by what they see going on in their own country by the corrupt politicians and bureaucratic VA system and wonder...why did they fight for their country? How do you adjust to that? How do you survive a nation in turmoil? How to you 'adjust' to something you once believed in and were let down when you came home and found 'life' just as bad as you left it and even worse? How do you survive when a nation has turned their back on you? How do you build 'pride' in something that just isn't there anymore?
Adjust to that!
