The Veteran: Mental Health & Performance

"We learned to operate in the strict environment of the military, and we can learn to strive in the freedom of our civilian lives. We can reconnect with ourselves; we can strengthen and build our relationships; we can learn the skills to improve our emotional, spiritual, and social well-being. We can succeed while being human."

~ Tania D. Perez-Orozco, MA, LPC-A
