Combat/Military PTSD

Combat stress is a normal reaction to a combative environment; it can result in fatigue, loss of concentration, or a decreased reaction time. PTSD, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can develop after someone is exposed to a traumatic environment.

Some problems that are associated with combat stress & trauma include aggressive behavior, alcohol/drug use, depression and suicidal ideation.

Important things to know about combat stress:

  • You are not alone.
  • This is not about weakness.
  • You deserve to heal and recover from the emotional wounds of combat, just as much as physical healing.
  • Help is available.
