US Senator Patrick Leahy says Vermont’s Veterans Administration Medical Center could get $3 million to help study post-traumatic stress disorder and help rural health care providers deal with the problem. Leahy says the National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder at the White River Junction hospital would help create the nation’s first brain tissue repository dedicated to researching the physical impact of stress and trauma on the brain. The other half of the funding would go toward a Rural Veterans with PTSD Outreach Program to support community health care providers with state-of-the-art information and resources on PTSD diagnosis and treatment. The funding is included in a military construction and veterans affairs budget bill that awaits passage by both chambers of Congress and the president’s signature.
