Coping Strategies

When service members leave the military and become veterans, they often times have difficulties. When they don’t know where to turn to identify the coping strategies that work best for them it can be a hopeless feeling. Some of these issues include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), homelessness, addiction, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and a variety of others.

These episodes of Drive On Podcast cover coping strategies for veterans. They aren’t your traditional “talk therapy” that many people think of.

If you, or someone you know, needs immediate assistance, please check out the resources for veterans page. There, we have a wide variety of options on an easy-to-navigate page.
