Grasping PTSD Among Veterans and Its Impact on Families

The journey of having a family member or loved one in military service can be filled with ups and downs. While a veteran’s return may bring moments of joy and the reclaiming of lost time, it can also entail grappling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a psychological condition that emerges in individuals who have witnessed or experienced a traumatic event. Veterans, given their exposure to combat and other stressful situations, are particularly prone to developing PTSD. As a friend, spouse, or relative of a veteran affected by PTSD, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed or powerless. Expanding your knowledge about the disorder can empower your family to navigate this silent and isolating challenge.
