This volume explores the unique psychiatric needs of active and former military personnel and offers clinical pearls for the optimal delivery of care for these individuals. Written by experts in military and veteran psychiatry, this book addresses the most common issues in military and veteran patients, including depression, traumatic brain injury, posttraumatic stress disorder, substance use disorder, homelessness, and suicidality. Chapters highlight the characteristics of veterans suffering from each disorder that requires special treatment, making it a valuable resource for both military and civilian clinicians. Veteran Psychiatry in the US is a valuable resource for all mental health clinicians working with or seeking to work with veterans, including psychiatrists, neurologists, primary care physicians, psychologists, counselors, social workers, nurses, residents, and all others
