How Mindfulness Helps Veterans Struggling with TBI, PTSD, & Suspected CTE | Operation Brain Health



Mindfulness is a useful part of the recovery plan for Veterans who are suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or possible Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). In this video, Dr. Rebecca Van Horn, a psychiatrist and U.S. Army Reservist, describes how to seek out mindfulness-based interventions, and why mindfulness can be so helpful in the recovery from brain trauma.

Operation Brain Health is part of the Concussion Legacy Foundation’s Project Enlist, which is serving as a catalyst for research on military Veterans with TBI, CTE and PTSD by rapidly increasing the number of Veteran brains donated to brain banks for study. Operation Brain Health is providing a service to Veterans through positive brain health messaging to help support the heroes who courageously fight for our nation.
