Find Help

The military has made its soldiers strong and adept at handling tough situations. It can be difficult to handle symptoms of combat stress and PTSD on your own, though.

Getting help can make readjusting to civilian life easier. Confide in friends or family, and call a mental health professional, who can work with you to manage and treat your PTSD.

Remember, seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness.
