Psychiatric Annals

Editorial 

At Least We Can Help Our Own Put the Pieces Back Together

Jan Fawcett, MD

Abstract

This month’s issue of Psychiatric Annals, guest edited by Harold M. Ginzburg, MD, JD, MPH, focuses on the psychological effects of military combat on our soldiers, their families, and communities. In his guest editorial, Dr. Ginzburg has aptly outlined the articles in this series, but has done much more in outlining the battles many veterans face in getting the help and support they need with war-induced conditions such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, drug and alcohol abuse, the stressors in relationships, and integrating back into civilian life.
