TORONTO — There are significant gaps in health care coverage for military veterans, particularly mental health care, that need to be addressed, according to Elspeth "Cam" Ritchie, MD, MPH.

“Many people think veterans go to the VA for care, most of the time that is not true, or they get some care from the VA system and some care within the public mental health system or through their colleges or workplace. Often the college or workplace don’t know what to do and as a system we’re not well integrated,” Ritchie told Healio.com/Psychiatry.
