Greater public awareness of PTSD. TAKE 'THE , Raise Awareness , i~ J me 2013 can help reduce the stigma of this mental health problem and overcome negative stereo- types that may keep many people from pursuing treatment." -Dr. Matthew Friedman, Executive Director of the National Center for PTSD Senator John Hoeven (R-ND), along with Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), announced in January of this year that the Fargo Veterans Af- fairs (VA) Health Care System will receive $8.5 million in federal fund- ing to offer expanded mental health services to Fargo-area veterans. The senators said the War on Terror and other foreign operations have created the need for additional resources to accommodate veterans deal- ing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other battle-relat- ed mental health issues. In response, Congress helped to address the need with increased funding in Fiscal Year 2013 for a range of men- tal health services at VA facilities across the nation, including Fargo. The Fargo VA facility provides a wide range of programs for suicide prevention, as well as therapy and treatment options for veterans suf- fering from PTSD. The Suicide Prevention Program is designed to assist veterans struggling with suicidal thoughts and to reduce the incidence of sui- cide. The Fargo facility has on staff a full-time suicide prevention co- ordinator who coordinates a range of suicide prevention programs, in- cluding education and outreach, rapid response connected to a veter- an crisis telephone line and direct counseling. The Post-traumatic Stress Recovery Program is designed to as- sist veterans who have experienced traumatic events or severe stress while serving in the military. The primary goal is to help veterans cope with immediate and long-term consequences from experiencing a trau- matic life event. That includes programs to help veterans with depression, anger management, substance abuse and sleep management. The cen- ter also offers a program designed to help family members become ac- quainted with symptoms, the effects on relationships, and treatment options available The Fargo facility is staffed with two full-time psy- chologists who are experts in treating PTSD. PTSD can occur following a life-threatening event likemilitary com- hat, natural disasters, terroristincidents, serious accidents, oLviolent personal assaults like rape. It.can also occur after experiencing death and agony associated with the previously mentioned events. Most survivors of a traumatic event return to normal with a little time and encouragement. However, some people have stress reactions that don't go away on their own, or may even get worse over time. These individuals may develop chronic PTSD.
