Our bravest, our strongest, those who defend our country and give us the freedoms that we sometimes take for granted, are the same people who find themselves surrounded by stigma when they seek help for the mental health issues caused in the line of duty.  The fact that stigma exists for active military and veterans when they seek help is no secret. That’s why changes are being made.
On today’s episode of Changing Direction, Michele welcomes Kim Dennis, MD, CEDS, Medical Director and CEO, of Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center. Kim will discuss the greatest areas of stigma in the military, eating disorders and sexual trauma, as well as combat PTSD. Dr. Dennis will also address what is being done to reduce the negative perceptions that exist and create a more welcoming environment for our military and veterans so they can seek help, comfortably.
Michele’s shows combine scientific research, cutting-edge guests and personal stories that highlight the challenges and successes of deliberately deciding to change the direction of your life. For more ideas about how to create change you choose, visit www.ChangeYouChoose.com.
