In October – November, Edelman conducted a study to assess the general
well-being of veterans in America. The objective of the study was to
compare the well-being of veterans and military personnel with non-
veterans and other key audiences when it comes to mental health in
particular. The study also explored perceptions of veterans and military
personnel and the issues they may encounter with securing employment.
The study revealed several key findings specifically related to veterans
and military personnel, non-veterans and employers. Overall, the study’s
findings imply that misperceptions of veterans exist among both
employers and the general public. These misperceptions stem from
negative assumptions about veterans’ mental health and general well-
being. Furthermore, the stereotyping of veterans as “heroes” may create
emotional distance between veterans and civilians, making it difficult for
community members to connect with veterans and see them as potential
colleagues.
What we found has led us to the strong conclusion that it is time to
change the way we talk about mental health. And to grasp that no one is
immune from experiencing mental health challenges, whether short-term
or chronic. All of us are affected by conditions that are invisible and cause
us emotional pain and suffering.

VETERANS WELL-BEING SURVEY EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
VETERANS WELL-BEING SURVEY
2016
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 50
percent of Americans will face some mental health obstacles over
their lifetime, and that one in five has a diagnosable mental health
condition. Our survey, which used a broader definition, found that
one-in-three Americans say they experienced a mental health
challenge in the past year.
With so many of us experiencing mental health challenges, it is
also time to change the narrative about veterans and address the
misconceptions that exist about the mental health challenges they
experience. These misconceptions are damaging and can keep
veterans from securing the job opportunities that maximize their
skills and experience, and from seeking the care they may need.
Together, these findings spotlight the need to change our
perspective about mental health. Mental health is a critical aspect
of human functioning – whether you are a veteran or not. And
having a mental health challenge – or a diagnosable condition –
does not prevent you from being a good employee or an asset in
your community.
Edelman is committed to continuing to partner with others to
encourage a public dialogue that we hope can change the culture
around mental health and more effectively support those who
serve. We want to encourage the growth of a community:
To talk openly about our mental well-being just as we do our
physical well-being.
• To consider mental health a vital part of our overall well-being.
• To recognize that we each can experience mental health
challenges.
• To recognize that some of the wounds of war are invisible but
can be treated effectively.
• To ensure that service members, veterans and their families
seek and receive high-quality care that’s culturally competent.
• To challenge employers to recognize how military skills and
experience translate into job and leadership opportunities.

In total, Edelman surveyed 2,055 individuals across the United States,
including non-veterans and civilians, veterans and military personnel,
health care providers, educators and employers. For the purposes of the
study, “well-being” was defined as “having financial stability, being
healthy (both mentally and physically), having the ability to have
meaningful relationships, and possessing a desirable job/career.”

Edelman would like to thank Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen and Dr. Randy
Phelps for their contributions to the development, analysis and
presentation of this study.

METHODOLOGY
Mental health challenges exist for veterans
/military personnel and non-veterans alike.
While mental health challenges are particularly associated with veterans/military
personnel, non-veterans also experience mental health challenges. Of those
surveyed, one-third (33%) of non-veterans and 47% of veterans/military personnel
claim they’ve experienced a mental health challenge in the last year. While the CDC
reports that 1 in 5 Americans suffer from a diagnosable mental health condition, this
finding suggests that overall mental health challenges may be more prevalent. As a
result, mental health should be considered an issue that impacts everyone.
2016 VETERANS WELL-BEING SURVEY
Q. Please complete the following sentence with one response. “Within the past year, I have/have not experience
a mental health challenge.” (n=615 Veterans/Military Personnel; n=1,000 Non-veterans; n=347 Employers)

Veterans/military personnel care about their
mental well-being and the well-being of others.
Veterans/military personnel are as engaged in caring for their mental health as the
general public. Fifty-eight percent of the veterans/military personnel surveyed
regularly engage in activities to care for their mental health compared to 52% of
civilians. In addition, 91% of veterans/military personnel surveyed believe that their
mental health is as important as their physical health, on par with civilians (89%).
Q. How familiar are you with the following: recognizing
the signs of emotional suffering? (n=615

Q. Please select how much you agree or disagree with the
following statement: “I know what to do when someone
needs help.” (Top 2 Box, n=615 Veterans/Military
Personnel; n=1,000 Non-veterans; n=347 Employers)
Figure 3. Know What to Do When
Someone Needs Help
More importantly, veterans/military personnel feel better equipped to recognize the
signs of mental health challenges. Sixty-three percent of veterans/military personnel
are familiar with signs of emotional suffering (compared to 39% of non-veterans), and
69% know how to help someone in need of emotional support. Finally,
veterans/military personnel (46%) say it would be easy to admit if they had a mental
health problem, compared to 48% of civilians and only 39% of employers. Altogether,
this data implies that veterans/military personnel are as in tune with their own
emotional well-being as non-veterans and are more likely to recognize others’
emotional suffering.

Employers may have misperceptions of veterans’
mental health needs.
Employers particularly associate veterans with mental health challenges and assume
veterans don’t have access to mental health care. Of those surveyed, ninety-two
percent of employers feel that mental health programs are necessary to support
veterans in their communities, but only 16% believe veterans have good access to
mental health support.

Q. What kinds of support programs are needed in your community to support veterans?? (n=615 Veterans/Military
Personnel; n=1,000 Non-veterans; n=347 Employers)
Furthermore, employers have somewhat negative perceptions of individuals with
mental health challenges. Forty-five percent of employers believe that individuals
with mental health issues are more dangerous than those without, and only 26% of
employers believe that others are generally sympathetic toward individuals with
mental health concerns. This view toward mental health combined with employers’
pre-existing notions of veterans’ mental health needs could be negatively affecting
their perceptions of veteran applicants.

Veterans have the skills employers want but their
lack of job-specific education/experience may be a
hurdle to securing employment.
Most employers believe that individuals with job-related education/experience will be
more successful in a position than those without. Of those surveyed, 76% agree that a
person is most effective in a role when he or she has experience/education in a
specific field vs. coming in with leadership experience in an unrelated field.
2016 VETERANS WELL-BEING SURVEY
However, this doesn’t mean that veterans/military personnel don’t have the skills
employers want. When asked which skills/traits they believe are most important for a
job candidate to possess, employers list a sense of duty and responsibility (62%),
ethical person (61%), works effectively with others (59%) and is an effective
communicator (58%) as their top requirements. These are the exact skills and traits
veterans/military personnel believe they possess. Unfortunately, employers’
preference for individuals with job-related education/experience, combined with
some veterans (29%) inability to effectively translate their skills to new roles, may
be inhibiting veterans’ employment prospects.

2016 VETERANS WELL-BEING SURVEY
Veterans are recognized for their service but aren’t
seen as strategic assets in their communities.
Both non-veterans and employers view veterans/military personnel as “heroes” in
their communities, a perspective that could be interfering with more realistic
perceptions of who they are as people. Of those surveyed, 71% of civilians and 84% of
employers believe that veterans are viewed as “heroes” in their communities, and
both civilians (74%) and employers (76%) believe veterans should be portrayed in this
way to ensure they have opportunities.

Q. In your opinion, how are veterans typically viewed? (n=615 Veterans/Military Personnel; n=1,000 Non-
veterans; n=347 Employers)
However, far fewer civilians (22%) and employers (26%) believe that veterans are
viewed as “strategic assets” in their communities and only 20% of civilians and 32%
of employers believe it is important to view veterans as such. Unfortunately,
veterans/military personnel also subscribe to this perspective; only 34% feel veterans
are viewed as strategic assets and only 37% of veterans/military personnel believe it
is important to see them this way.
Without the inclination to see veterans as assets, it could be difficult for non-
veterans and other groups to understand how veterans can benefit their
communities post-service. This, combined with the view of veterans as heroes, may
make it difficult for civilians and employers to see veterans as potential colleagues.

Overall, the study’s findings imply that misperceptions
of veterans exist among both employers and the
general public.
These misperceptions stem from negative assumptions about veterans’ well-being and mental health.
Furthermore, the stereotyping of veterans as “heroes” may create emotional distance between
veterans and civilians, making it difficult for community members to connect with veterans
and see them as potential colleagues.

2016 Veterans Well-Being Survey

  • 1. In October – November, Edelman conducted a study to assess the general well-being of veterans in America. The objective of the study was to compare the well-being of veterans and military personnel with non- veterans and other key audiences when it comes to mental health in particular. The study also explored perceptions of veterans and military personnel and the issues they may encounter with securing employment. The study revealed several key findings specifically related to veterans and military personnel, non-veterans and employers. Overall, the study’s findings imply that misperceptions of veterans exist among both employers and the general public. These misperceptions stem from negative assumptions about veterans’ mental health and general well- being. Furthermore, the stereotyping of veterans as “heroes” may create emotional distance between veterans and civilians, making it difficult for community members to connect with veterans and see them as potential colleagues. What we found has led us to the strong conclusion that it is time to change the way we talk about mental health. And to grasp that no one is immune from experiencing mental health challenges, whether short-term or chronic. All of us are affected by conditions that are invisible and cause us emotional pain and suffering.

  • 2. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 50 percent of Americans will face some mental health obstacles over their lifetime, and that one in five has a diagnosable mental health condition. Our survey, which used a broader definition, found that one-in-three Americans say they experienced a mental health challenge in the past year. With so many of us experiencing mental health challenges, it is also time to change the narrative about veterans and address the misconceptions that exist about the mental health challenges they experience. These misconceptions are damaging and can keep veterans from securing the job opportunities that maximize their skills and experience, and from seeking the care they may need. Together, these findings spotlight the need to change our perspective about mental health. Mental health is a critical aspect of human functioning – whether you are a veteran or not. And having a mental health challenge – or a diagnosable condition – does not prevent you from being a good employee or an asset in your community. Edelman is committed to continuing to partner with others to encourage a public dialogue that we hope can change the culture around mental health and more effectively support those who serve. We want to encourage the growth of a community: To talk openly about our mental well-being just as we do our physical well-being. • To consider mental health a vital part of our overall well-being. • To recognize that we each can experience mental health challenges. • To recognize that some of the wounds of war are invisible but can be treated effectively. • To ensure that service members, veterans and their families seek and receive high-quality care that’s culturally competent. • To challenge employers to recognize how military skills and experience translate into job and leadership opportunities. © 2016 Daniel J. Edelman Holdings, Inc. All rights reserved
  • 3. In total, Edelman surveyed 2,055 individuals across the United States, including non-veterans and civilians, veterans and military personnel, health care providers, educators and employers. For the purposes of the study, “well-being” was defined as “having financial stability, being healthy (both mentally and physically), having the ability to have meaningful relationships, and possessing a desirable job/career.” *** Edelman would like to thank Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen and Dr. Randy Phelps for their contributions to the development, analysis and presentation of this study. For more information about the study and these findings, please contact John Edelman at John.Edelman@edelman.com. © 2016 Daniel J. Edelman Holdings, Inc. All rights reserved 2016 METHODOLOGY
  • 4. Mental health challenges exist for veterans /military personnel and non-veterans alike. While mental health challenges are particularly associated with veterans/military personnel, non-veterans also experience mental health challenges. Of those surveyed, one-third (33%) of non-veterans and 47% of veterans/military personnel claim they’ve experienced a mental health challenge in the last year. While the CDC reports that 1 in 5 Americans suffer from a diagnosable mental health condition, this finding suggests that overall mental health challenges may be more prevalent. As a result, mental health should be considered an issue that impacts everyone. 2016 VETERANS WELL-BEING SURVEY Q. Please complete the following sentence with one response. “Within the past year, I have/have not experience a mental health challenge.” (n=615 Veterans/Military Personnel; n=1,000 Non-veterans; n=347 Employers) 47% 33% 43% Figure 1. Experienced a Mental Health Challenge in the Past Year Veterans/Military Personnel Non-Veterans Employers © 2016 Daniel J. Edelman Holdings, Inc. All rights reserved
  • 5. Veterans/military personnel care about their mental well-being and the well-being of others. Veterans/military personnel are as engaged in caring for their mental health as the general public. Fifty-eight percent of the veterans/military personnel surveyed regularly engage in activities to care for their mental health compared to 52% of civilians. In addition, 91% of veterans/military personnel surveyed believe that their mental health is as important as their physical health, on par with civilians (89%). Q. How familiar are you with the following: recognizing the signs of emotional suffering? (n=615 Veterans/Military Personnel; n=1,000 Non-veterans; n=347 Employers) 63% 39% 51% Veterans/Military Personnel Non-Veterans Employers Figure 2. Familiarity with Signs of Emotional Suffering 2016 VETERANS WELL-BEING SURVEY 69% 59% 65% Veterans/Miltary Personnel Non-Veterans Employers Q. Please select how much you agree or disagree with the following statement: “I know what to do when someone needs help.” (Top 2 Box, n=615 Veterans/Military Personnel; n=1,000 Non-veterans; n=347 Employers) Figure 3. Know What to Do When Someone Needs Help More importantly, veterans/military personnel feel better equipped to recognize the signs of mental health challenges. Sixty-three percent of veterans/military personnel are familiar with signs of emotional suffering (compared to 39% of non-veterans), and 69% know how to help someone in need of emotional support. Finally, veterans/military personnel (46%) say it would be easy to admit if they had a mental health problem, compared to 48% of civilians and only 39% of employers. Altogether, this data implies that veterans/military personnel are as in tune with their own emotional well-being as non-veterans and are more likely to recognize others’ emotional suffering. © 2016 Daniel J. Edelman Holdings, Inc. All rights reserved
  • 6. Employers may have misperceptions of veterans’ mental health needs. Employers particularly associate veterans with mental health challenges and assume veterans don’t have access to mental health care. Of those surveyed, ninety-two percent of employers feel that mental health programs are necessary to support veterans in their communities, but only 16% believe veterans have good access to mental health support. 2016 VETERANS WELL-BEING SURVEY Figure 4. Programs Needed to Support Veterans 78% 62% 82% 70% 43% 71% 92% 65% 88% Mental Health Education Employment Veterans/Miltary Personnel Non-Veterans Employers Q. What kinds of support programs are needed in your community to support veterans?? (n=615 Veterans/Military Personnel; n=1,000 Non-veterans; n=347 Employers) Furthermore, employers have somewhat negative perceptions of individuals with mental health challenges. Forty-five percent of employers believe that individuals with mental health issues are more dangerous than those without, and only 26% of employers believe that others are generally sympathetic toward individuals with mental health concerns. This view toward mental health combined with employers’ pre-existing notions of veterans’ mental health needs could be negatively affecting their perceptions of veteran applicants. © 2016 Daniel J. Edelman Holdings, Inc. All rights reserved
  • 7. Veterans have the skills employers want but their lack of job-specific education/experience may be a hurdle to securing employment. Most employers believe that individuals with job-related education/experience will be more successful in a position than those without. Of those surveyed, 76% agree that a person is most effective in a role when he or she has experience/education in a specific field vs. coming in with leadership experience in an unrelated field. 2016 VETERANS WELL-BEING SURVEY However, this doesn’t mean that veterans/military personnel don’t have the skills employers want. When asked which skills/traits they believe are most important for a job candidate to possess, employers list a sense of duty and responsibility (62%), ethical person (61%), works effectively with others (59%) and is an effective communicator (58%) as their top requirements. These are the exact skills and traits veterans/military personnel believe they possess. Unfortunately, employers’ preference for individuals with job-related education/experience, combined with some veterans (29%) inability to effectively translate their skills to new roles, may be inhibiting veterans’ employment prospects. © 2016 Daniel J.

  • 9. 2016 VETERANS WELL-BEING SURVEY Veterans are recognized for their service but aren’t seen as strategic assets in their communities. Both non-veterans and employers view veterans/military personnel as “heroes” in their communities, a perspective that could be interfering with more realistic perceptions of who they are as people. Of those surveyed, 71% of civilians and 84% of employers believe that veterans are viewed as “heroes” in their communities, and both civilians (74%) and employers (76%) believe veterans should be portrayed in this way to ensure they have opportunities. F6. Current Perception of Veterans 36% 65% 34%28% 75% 22% 32% 84% 26% Victims Heroes Strategic Assets Veterans/Military Personnel Non-Veterans Employers Q. In your opinion, how are veterans typically viewed? (n=615 Veterans/Military Personnel; n=1,000 Non- veterans; n=347 Employers) However, far fewer civilians (22%) and employers (26%) believe that veterans are viewed as “strategic assets” in their communities and only 20% of civilians and 32% of employers believe it is important to view veterans as such. Unfortunately, veterans/military personnel also subscribe to this perspective; only 34% feel veterans are viewed as strategic assets and only 37% of veterans/military personnel believe it is important to see them this way. Without the inclination to see veterans as assets, it could be difficult for non- veterans and other groups to understand how veterans can benefit their communities post-service. This, combined with the view of veterans as heroes, may make it difficult for civilians and employers to see veterans as potential colleagues. © 2016 Daniel J. Edelman Holdings, Inc.

  • 11.
