Dealing With a Family Member’s Post-Traumatic Stress
It can be scary when a family member returns home from wartime and exhibits extreme mood symptoms. Angry outbursts that are sometimes violent in nature, moodiness throughout the day, paranoia, depression – all these can take a toll on the entire family. Getting your military member to recognize the need for treatment can be tricky. It’s important that he or she know that you are not judging and that it’s a problem for many people. It is not a signifier of weakness in any way. In fact, getting help will only strengthen his or her ability to handle the pressures that come along with the job.
