Stigma in the Military

Service members are often worried about stigma when they need to seek help for mental and physical deployment injuries. Service members are frequently concerned that going for treatment or getting labeled with a specific condition will lead to loss of security clearance, demotion, medical discharge, disrespect among unit members, disappointment from CO‟s, etc. This fear can keep service members (and sometimes their families) from seeking needed help.
