Abstract

Mental illness and injury, including post-traumatic stress disorder, represents a significant source of disability and morbidity among military and veteran populations. This article explores the pathophysiology, identification, and treatment of military service-connected trauma-related and stressor-related disorders. Particular attention is given to trauma informed care, evidence-based practice recommendations, and the sequencing of psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy in pursuit of optimal patient outcomes.
