Support for Veterans
Veterans may experience worry or anxiety about their risk for contracting COVID-19 or about their ability to get recommended care. Fear or concern about the impact of COVID-19 on physical health and daily life may contribute to the onset of or worsen existing mental health problems. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic may increase stress for many service members and Veterans making an already-challenging transition from military to civilian life because access to resources may be limited.
You may experience increased stress during this pandemic. Fear and anxiety can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions.
