Understanding PTSD for Veterans

Having a family member or loved one in the military can be a difficult journey. Although returning as a veteran can include happy moments of making up for lost time, it can also mean dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder, a mental illness that occurs in those who have seen or experienced an accident. Veterans are more susceptible to PTSD due to their exposure to combat and other stressful situations. As a friend, spouse or relative of a veteran with PTSD, you may feel overwhelmed or helpless. Learning more about the disorder can help your family navigate this quiet and isolating crisis.
