Facts About...

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
(PTSD)

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a term often used to describe a variety of psychological problems and readjustment-to-life problems (marital difficulties, work problems, alcohol abuse etc) exhibited by persons who have experienced a traumatic event. Warfare and combat are often the triggers of PTSD, called "battle fatigue" or "shell shock" in the past. Research indicates that a substantial number of Vietnam veterans suffer from some form of PTSD.


Facts:

  • Various studies have concluded that many Vietnam veterans have suffered with the affects of PTSD at some point in their lives. One study has concluded that a large majority of Vietnam veterans continued to struggle with chronic PTSD 25 years after their experience in Vietnam.

  • Veterans are able to obtain help in dealing with the disorder from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Professional counseling and treatment can be effective in reducing the impact of PTSD for those who suffer from it.

  • The social support provided by sensitive family members and loved ones is also an important component in reducing the effects of PTSD.

  • TOP's tours of Vietnam have been carefully designed to also assist veterans and their families to reduce the anguish of PTSD.
