Comprehending PTSD Among Veterans’ Families

Supporting a family member or loved one in military service can be a challenging and tumultuous experience. While a veteran’s return may bring moments of joy and the recovery of lost time, it can also involve grappling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a psychological condition that arises in individuals who have witnessed or undergone a traumatic event. Veterans face an increased risk of PTSD due to their exposure to combat and other stressful situations. As a 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.
