In this episode, Duane shares his thoughts based on a blog post written on the Head Space and Timing website, 3 Reasons for Veterans to See a Mental Health Counselor…and It’s Not What You Think. Duane shares some different reasons why a veteran can and should look for a therapist to talk to.


  • The concept of “Before Stage Four” and how it applies to Veteran Mental Health
  • Talking to a mental health professional to become a better version of yourself
  • Talking to a mental health professional to perform “preventive maintenance”
  • Recognizing that Veterans experienced things beyond “normal” life
