The experience of having a family member or loved one in military service can be a tumultuous and challenging journey. While a veteran’s return may bring moments of joy and the reclamation of lost time, it can also involve the challenge of dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a psychological condition that arises in individuals who have witnessed or undergone a traumatic event. Veterans, given their exposure to combat and other stressful situations, are particularly susceptible to developing PTSD. 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 the disorder can empower your family to navigate this silent and isolating condition.
