More soldiers are dying as casualties off the field of battle…than on it.
We speak so often about the need to bring our soldiers home. But what happens when they experience Traumatic Brain Injury, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?
Over 300,000 American soldiers and veterans face these afflictions. And they’re committing suicide at a rate higher than those losing their lives on the battlefield.
At One Mind For Research, our mission of better diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders includes those who serve our country in the military.
Research shows us that Traumatic Brain Injury increases the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and ALS (“Lou Gehrig’s Disease”).
The financial impact of treating these psychiatric casualties over the course of their lifetime is $660 billion and climbing.
It doesn’t make sense that when our soldiers return home, they remain in harm’s way.
One Mind For Research aims to change that. By protecting those who do the same for us.
