Veteran's Day is now behind us, but we should continue to support our nation's heroes every day of the year. Many vets come home to face unemployment, homelessness, and
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), among other issues. The situation is often heart-breaking, but there's hope!
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, music therapy can help relieve PTSD symptoms. An article on the VA website states the "findings suggest that the music therapy was effective in reducing depression symptoms and improving health-related quality of life." For individuals who suffer from PTSD, this means a more stable and progressive lifestyle .
One organization devoted to music therapy for veterans with PTSD is Guitars for Vets. This non-profit group seeks to heal the wounds of wartime through music and personal, human connections.
