The University of Texas Health Science in Houston has opened a PTSD center for military veterans and their families.

The Center on Trauma and Resilience, funded by $4 million from the 2017 Texas Legislature, will research the most effective models of treatment to veterans and their families, who often experience behavioral issues of their own because of their loved one's post traumatic stress disorder.

"I have many veterans in my district suffering from PTSD and looking for the right treatments," said state Rep. Thompson, D-Houston, who authored the legislation and will be recognized at an opening celebration March 27. "This new UTHealth center will look at the right solutions for these heroes.

"Just as important, they will look at solutions that include the veterans' family and friends as part of that treatment. PTSD does not impact the patient in a vacuum, it also impacts those loved ones around that patient."

About 200,000 of the state's estimated 1.4 million veterans live in Harris County.

The center's focus on family members fills a gap for veterans experiencing PTSD. While their treatment is typically covered by the Veterans Administration or medical insurance, behavioral health treatment for family members usually is not.

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission will be a partner organization with UTHealth.

The center's clinic is located in the UTHealth Behavioral and Biomedical Sciences Building at 1941 East Road, Suite 2100. For appointments, call 713-486-2700.
