Timely article relaying news of a new SAMHSA grant in Wisconsin to help the homeless veteran population there. Of note is that they are estimating that 50% of those vets have a mental health diagnosis (think: ptsd, anxiety, depression) and up to 70% of them are expected to have a substance abuse problem at sometime in their future. These numbers should not be thought of as particular to this area of the country. All of our veterans need access to services that can help them recover from traumas (sights, sounds and injuries) when necessary and re-adjust to life outside of the military. Glad to see SAMHSA is putting some money in the right place!
