The Trauma of War Tee

Military action has disastrous consequences on individuals on pretty much every level. The military personnel themselves often end up in traumatic situations that stay with them long after their call to duty has ended. While many percentage of soldiers and people who have lived through war who deal with PTSD, they often still do not have access to the services they need to properly recover. They also often suffer through the stigma that is associated with mental illness, believing that they need to “tough it out” rather than getting help. This design is meant to put a spotlight on this struggle to encourage us all to embrace and support those who have lived through military conflict.

 

  1. Between 11 and 20% of the soldiers who served in operations from the Gulf and Vietnam Wars to Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom have been diagnosed with PTSD. This statistic does not include those who have not come forward with their suffering. Suicide brought on by PTSD is the leading cause of death in veterans. There are more than 6000 veteran suicides each year in the U.S. alone. (U.S. News)
  2. PTSD is often talked about with veterans, but studies have shown it affects innocent citizens caught in a war plagued region just as much. Without modern counseling techniques set up in many of these countries, people never get the help they need, even after the fighting has ended. Part of our rebuilding campaigns should focus on psychologically assisting citizens and refugees, as well as military personnel. (NCBI)
  3. Question: What was the scariest experience of your life? What would it do to your psychology if you had to endure that same experience every day for years?
