First Responder and Veteran Mental Health Treatment in Las Vegas
For those who have dedicated their lives to serving our communities and our country, the normal trials of everyday life are compounded with deployment-related challenges, traumatic events, and additional stresses on personal and work relationships. Risking their life in potentially dangerous situations and experiencing events that are hard to comprehend can lead to excessive stress and the triggering of mental health disorders for service members. These heroes fight for our freedom to pursue happiness, and deserve the same in return.
But, when dealing with mental illness, happiness may be hard to achieve. Focused treatment directed at a veteran’s mental health aims to help military members overcome service-related obstacles and discover the way to an entirely functional and fulfilling life.

Hope for Heroes Treatment Features
Our treatment for PTSD and other disorders that affect a large number of veterans and military members offers a full spectrum of inpatient services in a caring, respectful, and supportive environment. Patients in our Hope for Heroes program are set up to actively participate in their own mental health treatment. The military members and former members, as well as the first responders, we serve are encouraged to create a community within the hospital in which they can relate to and provide support for one another. This is a key component of treatment, as having an outlet that understands your feelings and experiences may make it easier to work past mental health issues related to military service.
The ultimate goal of every staff member at Desert Parkway is to provide a safe and accepting environment where our patients can begin their road to successful reintegration into a civilian way of life. This is especially important for veterans with PTSD, as the symptoms of the disorder often interfere with or delay the process, making coming home uncomfortable or unnatural for many. For the active-duty military personnel and first responders we care for, our military treatment program includes a post-discharge support group.
