What is Polytrauma?
The West Los Angeles Polytrauma Network Site in the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System is one of 23 facilities in the country designed to provide long-term 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.
Veterans Crisis Line.
For immediate help, call the National Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Your call is confidential and can also be anonymous. Or, you may have a confidential online conversation with a professional on the National Veterans Crisis Line Web Chat site
