Health and Homelessness Among Veterans

Health and Homelessness Among Veterans

Ratings: (0)|Views: 9 |Likes:
Published by Patricia Dillon
Following separation from the military, veterans may experience a host of service-connected and non-service-connected health issues. However, veterans without stable housing are more likely to receive military sexual trauma (MST)-related treatment, have higher disability ratings, and be diagnosed with a mental disorder (including substance-related disorders and all mental illness), traumatic brain injury (TBI), co-occurring psychiatric diagnoses, and major depression in comparison to housed veterans. Unhoused veterans are also more likely to report a chronic medical condition, two or more mental health conditions, and higher rates of hepatitis/cirrhosis and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) compared to homeless persons without veteran status.
