The Emory Healthcare Veterans Program is designed to treat the “invisible wounds” of war, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Military Sexual Trauma (MST) anxiety and depression related to past military service. Our team includes professionals in psychiatry, neurology, neuropsychology, social work and other fields. We’re experienced in working with combat veterans, and many of us have served as well. We understand the stresses of war and the challenges of returning to daily life here at home. Together, we’ll chart a course to help you find your way to peace of mind and your best life.
