Rural Health Training through MyVeHU Campus


Many servicemembers face a stigma when deciding whether to seek care for mental health needs.  Much of this stigma is based on myth, not reality.

Myth:  Getting mental health hurts your career.

Reality:  Seeking mental health care ensures you get the appropriate care from trained professionals to keep your career on track.  Mental health counseling alone is not a reason to revoke or deny a security clearance.

Myth:  Needing mental health care shows weakness.

Reality:  It takes real strength and courage to admit you have a problem and seek help.  PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other psychological conditions require medical care.
