Grasping PTSD in the Context of Military Service

Supporting a family member or loved one in military service often involves navigating a challenging and unpredictable journey. While a veteran’s return may bring moments of joy and reconnection, it may also entail grappling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a psychological condition that arises in individuals who have witnessed or experienced trauma. Veterans, due to their exposure to combat and other high-stress situations, are particularly vulnerable to developing PTSD. As a friend, spouse, or relative of a veteran affected by PTSD, you may experience feelings of being overwhelmed or powerless. Expanding your understanding of the disorder can empower your family to navigate this silent and isolating condition.
