What is Polytrauma?
The San Antonio Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center at San Antonio is one of five facilities in the country designed to provide intensive rehabilitative care to Veterans and Servicemembers who experienced severe injuries (including brain injuries) to more than one organ system. For more information about Polytrauma, visit the national Polytrauma System of Care page.
Mental Health Support/Veterans Crisis Line
Many Veterans with Polytrauma injuries also need mental health support. If you or someone you know is having trouble readjusting to civilian life, is having trouble sleeping, or is experiencing mood swings, depression, or other signs of extreme stress, we can offer free or low-cost assistance and care.
