Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can occur after you have been through a traumatic event. It is affecting a never-before-seen number of U.S. military who are traumatized by combat experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan. In this podcast, DBSA speaks with Laura Prescott, Executive Director and Founder of Sister Witness International and Advisory Board Member of Mental Disability Rights International. Laura offers a general overview of PTSD for anyone who has endured the horrors not just of war but also of abuse or a terrible accident.
