Are you a wounded warrior who is suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or know someone that is? Do you feel alone in your struggles with this silent, invisible injury–that no one truly understands what you are going through?
If so, know that you are not alone–there is hope.
About Face is a new online resource created by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs’ National Center for PTSD where veterans can learn about–and find help for–PTSD. This online resource features videos of veterans talking about the symptoms of PTSD; how PTSD affects them, their family, and their friends; and how they found treatment that helped them overcome the effects of this condition.
This unique resource for PTSD patients offers information on:
- Who I am
- How I knew I had PTSD
- How PTSD affects the people you love
- Why I didn’t ask for help right away
- When I knew I needed help
- What treatment was like for me
- How treatment helps me
- My advice to you
Start now and learn from veterans who share in similar PTSD situations.
