Many veterans suffer from physical injuries and illnesses after active duty. However, mental health is also a concern. Ex-service members often experience depression and PTSD. This illness, which is similar to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), can often be invisible and difficult to diagnose. But, depression can have a lasting impact on the well-being and quality of a veteran’s daily life.
Veterans suffering from depression might be eligible for disability benefits that are service-connected. This guide will explain the VA rating for depression.
