INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
PTSD and Military Veterans

Air date: Thurs., June 13, 8:00 pm

 

Military veterans who experience combat trauma are at a higher risk of suicide than others who experience post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. Across the country, an average of 20 veterans per day take their own lives. That is more than 7,000 per year. Where can veterans get help? How do friends and loved ones recognize the symptoms? Can the government do more?
