Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and who it affects
How many veterans struggle with PTSD?
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that PTSD afflicts
- Almost 31 percent of Vietnam veterans
- As many as 10 percent of Gulf War (Desert Storm) veterans
- 11 percent of veterans of the war in Afghanistan
- 20 percent of Iraqi war veterans
Many soldiers pray in large groups to help stay strong during wartime.
Many American soldiers continue to fight for their country even though they struggle with PTSD because they have pride in serving for their country.
The refuge program is designed to provide trauma and PTSD treatment in a wide variety of ways based upon the manner in which person copes with unresolved PTSD and trauma. Unresolved PTSD and trauma can manifest in a variety of self-destructive including self harm, overeating or restricting to reduce negative feelings, gambling, becoming a workaholic, and internet addiction.
