Combating The PTSD And Veteran Suicide Epidemic Using Cannabis
4 days ago
Today on Hempire our host is joined by Jose Bellen the co-founder of Mission Zero. Jose and his wife Danielle founded Mission Zero to combat the PTSD and veteran suicide epidemic plaguing U.S. veterans. They know from our own experiences that a PTSD diagnosis isn’t a death sentence or the end of the line. But they also know that it changes everything. Danielle and Jose know how it feels to have the horrors of the battlefield follow them home. They understand what it’s like to be endlessly hounded by nightmares, depression, anxiety, sleeplessness, and the thought that there might never be an escape. They have witnessed firsthand how the current medical and veterans-support systems often can’t handle the problem, relying on oversimplified approaches, punitive mindsets, and dangerous pharmaceuticals that risk making the situation worse. Jose knows what it’s like for the war within your mind to claim collateral damage: your job, your family, your very existence.
