PTSD

Of the 3.6 million military personnel deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, over half are married and about 53% are parents. As these veterans return home, the process of reintegration can have a variety of effects.

A Q&A with David J. Morris, author of The Evil Hours, a moving biographical book based on a young veteran’s experience with PTSD.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to how people and cultures should respond to overwhelming stress, depression, and trauma.

For PTSD in psychiatrists and other mental health care providers to be addressed, a major shift in medical culture and thinking is needed.

In addition to helping indiviiduals with PTSD, psychiatrists can play an active role in resolving trauma experienced by the country as a whole.
