In Support and Understanding - Memorial Day

As we prepare to celebrate the holiday in our own way, we need to take a moment or two to recognize those who serve and protect our country. We salute you!

While we have lost many soldiers to war, many have returned with the traumatic reflections that continues to haunt them long after they have left the combat zone. Those who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, find it difficult to adjust to living their lives as they once did before being deployed. Although some are able to sustain through medical and psychotherapy treatments, others have either entered into psychiatric facilities or have committed suicide.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder does not only touch the lives of the soldiers, we must also consider the families and friends who are also affected by the changes of their loved ones. It is also a loss even for those who have survived combat but are no longer the same, it really changes the dynamics of their relationships with their loved ones.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder treatments and advances discussed in the following videos:
