Welcome from Governor Dave Heineman

Welcome to the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder website of the Nebraska Department of Veterans’ Affairs. Whether you are a veteran, a family member of a veteran or someone who simply seeks more information on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), I hope that you find the following assembled information helpful.

It is not uncommon for combat veterans to experience some form of PTSD. Please take a few minutes and review the information contained on this site. Every click on a link will give you more information.

PTSD is real and PTSD can be treated. If you or a loved one might be suffering from PTSD, I encourage you to learn more and perhaps seek more information from health care professionals. Whether you were a soldier in the field or the spouse anxiously awaiting the return of your loved one, please know your sacrifice is appreciated.

Thank you for your service and welcome home.

Governor Dave Heineman
