Many veterans experience anxiety disorders and depression, as well as co-occurrence of these disorders. These disorders are associated with significant distress, reduced quality of life, greater functional impairment, decreased productivity, greater absenteeism, early separation from military service, and high utilization of health care resources. Co-occurrence is associated with greater symptom severity, functional impairment, and worse treatment response. This chapter outlines these disorders, their associated features, and includes a description of co-occurring disorders. Empirically supported treatments for these disorders are also discussed, including cognitive–behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, exposure with response prevention, and the Unified Protocol for emotional disorders. Finally, treatment strategies for co-occurring presentations are delineated.
