    9NEWS has learned the Surgeon General of the Army will visit Fort Carson next week to hold a hearing on post traumatic stress disorder.

    Lt. General Kevin Kiley heads up the Army task force on mental health. The hearing will take place on January 25 and 26.

    The hearing is being called a “site visit,” which means it is closed to the public. The Army is also holding “open sessions” on the subject.

    According to Cynthia Vaughan, Army spokesperson, because of the site visits “active duty service members and their families may have open and frank discussions with members of the task force about personal behavior health issues and concerns.”

    The visit comes on the heels of a National Public Radio news report in which soldiers criticized Fort Carson for not taking them seriously when they were diagnosed with PTSD.

    If you would like to contact the Mental Health Task Force to provide more information about experiences with veterans or PTSD, you can http://www.ha.osd.mil/DHB/mhtf/submission.cfm.
