Hey, I’m Wendy, and I would like bring post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to your attention regarding mental health problems involving veterans.

I have civil experiences that lead to this disorder while in my family it is directly connected to past military campaigns.

There is a very high rate of PTSD in veterans, and no surprise there. The diagnosis of PTSD historically originates from observations of the effect of combat on soldiers, while the grouping of symptoms that we now refer to as PTSD has been described in the past as combat fatigue or war neurosis.

Luckily, it can be managed or even healed, and for more information please find these sites below:

Hope this helps šŸ™‚

Looking forward to your topics and suggestions,

Peace,

Wendy
