PTSD & Veterans’ Disorders

In the above video, Colonel Bart Billings, clinical psychologist with a 34-year military career, talks about the nature of post-traumatic combat stress, the adverse effects of drugs in such situations and what can be done instead to help a person overcome post-traumatic stress.
Unfortunately, today, hundreds of thousands of men and women in uniform are being labeled with a mental illness and are being drugged with powerful psychotropic drug cocktails.

Psychiatric drugs that are being prescribed to active military and Vets who are suffering from the symptoms associated with the diagnosis of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome) have documented side-effects that include suicidal thoughts, aggression, suicidal ideation and homicidal ideation amongst a long list of harmful health side-effects.

  • Today, 37% of war veterans are being treated for the symptoms of PTSD, with 80% of those being “treated” with at least one psychiatric drug. The extent of the increased diagnosing and drugging is reflected in the mental health budgets of the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration, which collectively have reached nearly $9 billion annually.
  • In 2012 alone, more U.S. active duty service men and women committed suicide than died in combat, and veterans are killing themselves at the rate of 22 per day.
  • There have been claims that the high rate of military suicides is due to the unusual stressors associated with war. However, the facts have revealed that 85 percent of military suicides were among men and women who have not seen combat, and in fact 52 percent were never even deployed.
