Specialized Support

Specialized Support for our Military Service Men & Women

At North Tampa Behavioral Health Hospital, we honor the brave men and women who have chosen to defend our nation’s security through military service. We also acknowledge that active service often exposes our military members to high levels of stress and trauma. While this is to be expected to some extent due to the nature of the job, sometimes the cumulative effects of enduring chronic stress and tragedy can combine to elicit the symptoms of certain mental health conditions that will require professional help to overcome.

The effects of trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are sadly a very real part of life for many veterans and active duty military members. Fortunately, with help from our CORE program, military personnel in the Tampa area can access the comprehensive, specialized support they need to overcome mental health concerns. To learn more about the CORE program offered at our center, please review the information below.
