Many military personnel, particularly those returning to civilian life, struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Also known as shell shock, this mental illness is common in people who have experienced a traumatic event.
Veterans are frequently exposed to wartime and military training accidents and life-threatening experiences. Symptoms of this disease include nightmares, flashbacks, and extreme anxiety. Military service is one of the most common causes of PTSD. Fortunately, veterans with PTSD can improve their lives by taking care of themselves.
