Stress is a big part of a lot of the conversations about the care provided at our centers. It’s a root component of post-traumatic stress, one of the invisible wounds of war that is treated at our Intrepid Spirit Centers and National Intrepid Center of Excellence. It’s also a factor in many of the other conditions our centers address.
