Partnering to Support Women Veterans Returning to Civilian Life
The military men and women who risk their lives to protect our freedom deserve nothing short of a seamless reintegration into civilian life after their time in the service has come to an end. Unfortunately, readjusting to civilian life often poses challenges to our military heroes. In the 10 years following 9/11, 44% of veterans returning home struggled to adjust to civilian life. These former military members face a higher risk of suicide, mental health issues, unemployment, and homelessness, among other challenges.
Female veterans are just as likely as their male counterparts to experience difficulties adjusting to the “new normal” of civilian life; in some cases, they may have a more difficult time.
