Often, when people think of common mental health conditions associated with military service, their mind first goes to post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, Veterans can face a variety of different mental health conditions after service, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. Many Veterans contact Berry Law to see if these conditions are eligible for VA compensation. The short answer is yes.
