PTSD – When it comes home

Kelly Swanson – Thursday, December 31, 2015

Life doesn’t begin till you come home. Many men and women struggle with the aftermath of a traumatic event.

Most people think that Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) only happens to soldiers coming home from war, but they would be very wrong. PTSD affects many people in all walks of life in various levels and intensities. Research has found that stockbrokers, CEO’s, nurses, doctors, and law enforcement suffer right alongside our men and women from the armed services. With so much media attention being paid to the suffering of war, prisoners are more likely to suffer PTSD as well making recovery and rehabilitation from crimes committed just that much harder to solve when they want to seek help for addiction, abuse, or remorse.
