Prior to the fall of 2019, I became rated as 100% P&T disabled before my first contact with an MST Coordinator. I was tired of being in denial. I was cut off from Mental Health Care and plunged into darkness because of COVID-19 forced isolation. I had to find alternatives to help myself by starting to read everything about MST.
When I came across that the VA admits they failed MST Victims in the past by not understanding how serious the problem is. They made mistakes in denying benefits. I turned my study into this website to get the word out and to help Veterans who are MST Victims get care and compensation.
Did you know Veterans may have memories of MST or combat during their service that are still upsetting years later? For some, PTSD symptoms may be worse in later years as they age. Learn how as an older Veteran, you may still be affected by your past events during your service. There are tips to find help as well. Here is another study about how older VIETNAM ERA veterans start suffering from PTSD and Depression nearing their 8th Decade. So if you think you missed the boat for a PTSD Disability think again.
If you filed an MST-related claim before August 2018 and received a denial the VA encourages you to refile so that your claim can be reviewed by staff who have received MST training.
