This video is designed to help providers by increasing awareness of the cultural aspects of PTSD care when provided to African-American Veterans. PTSD does not discriminate. Millions of African-Americans have served our country in the military. Each African-American veteran brings his or her life experience, which may include discrimination or abuse -- and this may compound PTSD. Our goal is to help VA treatment providers and others understand the history and cultural issues of African-Americans and how we can best serve these Veterans.
NOTE: Some of the videos specific to Veterans may contain information that has changed since the production date. The most current information on Veterans benefits, eligibility, VA services, and more can be found through the Department of Veterans Affairs at www.va.gov.
