Recommended Posts

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (NNS) -- National Football League (NFL) and Heisman Trophy recipient Herschel Walker spoke to Sailors and civilians June 4 onboard Naval Support Activity Panama City (NSA PC) about breaking down stigmas related to mental illness.
Walker spoke specifically about his formally diagnosed dissociative identity disorder to NSA PC event attendees in support of the Universal Health Services Patriot Support Program, a TRICARE provider operating 14 inpatient/residential treatment centers in the continental United States. The program's mission is to encourage service members to ask for help with mental illnesses and substance abuse issues. Since 2008, Walker has visited more than 100 military installations or units and with more than 100,000 service members to share his personal experience about mental illness and treatment. http://www.navy.mil/submit/display.asp?story_id=87509
