Veterans Crisis Line imageReturning from deployment is not as simple as it may sound. Sure, it can be filled with joyful moments.  However, it can also invoke reactions that surprise even the most stoic soldier. It is important to recognize that these emotions are normal, especially during the first weeks. 

If you find that you are having difficulties adjusting, experiencing emotions that are confusing to you, or would like to speak with someone about these changes. Our office is available to encourage and support you while you get  back on your feet. Coping skills and social support are essential to adjusting positively to these changes. We want to encourage and provide support to you during this time of adjustment.;
