Seeking PTSD Veteran Resources

I have a friend who has PTSD, but there are limited resources for her here in Los Angeles. Many of the VA hospitals have rejected her saying that they do not have the resources for females. It just angers me that this is the case. I don't get why they refuse to treat her. Will someone shed some light on this?

RE: Seeking PTSD Veteran Resources

It is disgraceful, many people with PTSD have to suffer alone for this reason. PSTD is usually treated using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other types of therapy. I'm not sure why these hospitals would not have the 'resources' for females. Do they have the resources for men?

RE: Seeking PTSD Veteran Resources

It is so sad, what these vets go through. My dad was a Vietnam Vet, and back in the 80's ptsd was not treated. He had flashbacks every week at night. We would hear him yelling in his sleep. It is horrifying to know, what he had to go through. Now these vets are getting a little more treatment, but nothing can erase what they have been through. Supportive families and maybe therapy each week are a good palce to start.

My grandad suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for 50 years. My grandad was at the D-Day landing, he never once mentioned the war, he was scared to talk about it. His friends from wartime suffered the same fate, it is very sad.

RE: Seeking PTSD Veteran Resources

Just to update everyone: we found a clinic here in the Northeast Valley that has affordable resources and toll free hotlines for anyone in our community. It is just sad that she had to jump through so many hoops just to get some help just because she is a woman who served.

RE: Seeking PTSD Veteran Resources

@ shaun, Wow! My dad was the same, he never talked about Vietnam. My mom is the one that told us what he went through. He only talked about the friends he had while there. Families of Veterans suffer as well. I don't think you ever get to see the real person, that they were before they went to war. When you have a family member with PTSD, they are always dealing with it. Therefore, the whole family is always dealing with it. I admire all families of Veterans. Not an easy road.

Pleased to hear you found a clinic with affordable services, even though I believe these services should be free. Do you know why women are treated differently? Would it be easier for men to access treatment in your area? This issue needs to be addressed by the government.

Thanks for the feedback Shaun. She told me that when she went to the VA office that they said they "didn't have the resources to help female veterans." I have no idea what that means and why women would be treated differently for PTSD. It's weird and we live in a major city (Los Angeles).
