Being the big fan of TED Talks, I found this video which, for me, is an a really good broad brush explanation of some of the things we go through with PTSD. It also gets into the basics of what can be done about it. This is a solid video for anyone, but especially those who don’t know too much about PTSD and its effects.
PTSD disrupts the lives of average individuals as well as combat veterans who have served their country. The person experiencing the trauma often then impacts the lives of his/her family, friends, and workplaces. PTSD does not distinguish between race, age or gender and often goes undiagnosed.
