UCLA Study Finds Majority Of California Veterans Who Need Mental Health Care Receive Inadequate Or No Treatment
Wednesday, April 27, 2016 | Category: Mental Health - California
The UCLA Center for Health Policy Research study found that "76% of California veterans in need of mental health care from 2011 to 2013 either didn’t receive treatment or received inadequate care." Researchers noted that 90,000 veterans with at least one year of military service, or 3.5% of California's veterans, needed mental health care compared to 3.9% of nonveterans. This finding is contrary to perceptions that veterans are more likely to need mental health care.
