Compassionate, firsthand knowledge of the different ways in which PTSD manifests itself are described throughout the 12 case studies examined in this guide. Bringing this mental health issue to light for sufferers, families, and friends, these stories illuminate the confusion that often surrounds the behaviors and reactions associated with PTSD and can increase understanding, patience, and awareness.
