Understanding PTSD in Veterans

Supporting a family member or beloved individual in military service can be a challenging and tumultuous experience. While a veteran’s homecoming may bring moments of joy and reconnection, it can also involve dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a psychological condition that arises in individuals who have witnessed or experienced a traumatic event. Veterans are particularly prone to PTSD due to their exposure to combat and other highly stressful situations. As the friend, spouse, or relative of a veteran affected by PTSD, you might find yourself feeling overwhelmed or powerless. Gaining a deeper understanding of this disorder can empower your family to navigate this silent and isolating challenge.
