Every day, VA clinicians care for women and men who suffer from physical and mental sequelae of sexual harassment and sexual assault which occurred during military service. However, this problem, which has come to be known as “military sexual trauma”, has only recently reached the consciousness of the nation. Military sexual trauma (“MST”) has been defined by the Department of Veterans Affairs as: sexual harassment that is threatening in character or physical assault of a sexual nature that occurred while the victim was in the military, regardless of geographic location of the trauma, gender of victim, or the relationship to the perpetrator. VA clinicians are legally obligated to address the substantial physical and mental illness that can follow MST. This Veterans Health Initiative (VHI) will explain how they can help their patients who are suffering from disability related to prior MST.
