Remote work could be silver lining of a pandemic for some veterans, including those with PTSD | Military Times

Veterans may find remote working as a new career opportunity especially for those with PTSD. Carrie Elk, a therapist, said that “Work from home may be helpful to somebody with PTSD because it eliminates environmental irritants…that can have nothing to do with getting your job done.” The flexibility of working remotely also enables veterans to live near a support system or any specialized medical care they may need. One disadvantage though is that they may be at greater risk of social isolation and so it is important to remind them to continuously follow treatments and find social groups or continue outdoor and physical activities.
