Mixed methods study examining work reintegration experiences from perspectives of Veterans with mental health disorders

Marina Kukla, PhD, et al.

Veterans have difficulty reintegrating and having success in the civilian workplace after returning from deployment or separation from the military. This study sought to explore this issue by examining the experiences of 40 Veterans with mental health disorders. Results indicated that Veterans who served in combat experienced more work barriers, particularly health barriers, compared with Veterans who did not serve in combat. Veterans who served in combat had subjective experiences that were consistent with this finding; these Veterans experienced substantial difficulty during the early transition after leaving the military, which often negatively affected their success at work and in their interpersonal lives.
