Senior Savvy Important Tools To get help with your Medicare )rlt. page 6 -Walsh County Veterans Service Office The Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense have begun to slowly but surely take a more liberal stance on Mental Health Condition claims. When I assist a Veteran in filing a MHC claim, it can take months to fully develop it. It's a very emotional issue. 'How does that make you feel?' is no longer a question that should render a laugh or chuckle. Rather it should really make a person think long and hard about how a situation or series of events made them feel and are making them feel. Depending upon which psychology books you check out at the library, emotions are either in our control or aren't. We all would love to believe we are in complete control of our emotions, but, personally speaking, I don't believe that. Military Veterans, whether they fought in combat or not, experience situations that a regular every day civilian shouldn't--I say shouldn't be- cause there appears to be an uptick in U.S. civilians experiencing war- zone-like conditions. As soldiers, marines, airmen, seamen, and coasties, we go through training simulations where the object is to get out alive. These situations can affect people differently depending on how it all turns out in the real thing or just in training. It could be a training accident, or an almost fatal accident. Could be a course unfinished, the ultimate humiliation and failure. Could be an attack on your person, an attack that you can't report until you are discharged. Could be that you were the sole survivor of your unit, lost a limb. I would have to borrow an entire page in this paper to list all the pos- sible scenarios. But the point of this is to inform Veterans and their fam- ilies that there are many chances for things to go wrong and for them to affect you emotionally as a person. Now, where does this get us? What is a mental health claim? Put sim- ply, ifa Veteran experienced something in service that caused them emo- tional distress in any way, they can claim it. If a Veteran has been formally diagnosed with a Mental Health Condition (i.e. Depression, Post-Trau- matic Stress, Anxiety), but not service-connected for it, that is where I come in to assist. The key to a Mental Health Condition claim is the personal statement. You, the Veteran, need to write down what happened and how that makes you feel. It is not as easy as it appears. I'll take more time to go over the statement itself in a later column. Thank you for your service. Call with any questions: 352-5030.
