Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric disorder that can originate from experiencing or witnessing any number of frightening or distressing events, such as a serious accident, a natural disaster, combat or a violent assault, or personal abuse or harassment. If you’re living with PTSD, you may feel as though you’re destined to deal with these symptoms forever. But treatment is possible, and you do not have to bear this burden alone.
Military families are uniquely affected by work and life stressors. Pre-deployment training and preparation, deployment, as well as reintegration can affect not only the service member, but his/her spouse and family.
