When Screened by a VA health Care Provider 1 out 3 Women reported having experienced Military Sexual Trauma (MST).

 

The VA has reported that rate of suicide among women is 2x higher among women Veterans

Statistics and Reporting: The prevalence of sexual assault in the military, particularly affecting female service members, has long-standing concern. Reports have indicated that a significant number of cases still go unreported due to a fear of retaliation, concerns about career advancement, and distrust in the military’s handling of such cases.

 

Impact: Sexual assault can have profound and enduring effects on mental health, leading to PTSD, depression, anxiety, and difficulties in forming trusting relationships. These challenges can significantly hinder a veteran's transition to civilian life.

The problem we are trying to solve is complex.

 

Challenges persist due to underreporting, lack of comprehensive data, and the need for more targeted, gender-specific services tailored to the unique experiences of female veterans.

 

Overall, addressing these multifaceted challenges requires a holistic approach involving policy changes, cultural shifts, increased support services, and continued advocacy to ensure the well-being and successful reintegration of female veterans into civilian life.
