PTSD: prevention and treatment

According to the Veterans Administration, up to 35 percent of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. The crisis is so bad that 18 veterans now commit suicide every day. The David Lynch Foundation is working with several veterans groups involved in PTSD outreaches to provide affected soldiers with highly effective tools to overcome stress, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, insomnia, family problems, and suicide—and begin to live healthy, productive lives.
