Get a Nexus Letter from a psychologist

Some reasons you might want a nexus letter/ independent opinion from a psychologist:
  • establishing a direct service connection for mental health concerns (ex: PTSD, depression, anxiety) or a TBI
  • establishing a service connection for other problems related to your mental health concerns (ex: sleep apnea due to PTSD)
  • establishing service connection for mental health concerns secondary to an already service connected problem (ex: depression due to a service connected tinnitus)
  • a potential increase/ unemployability
