Today is PTSD AWARENESS DAY and I wanted to give you guys some information about PTSD from my perspective.
There are 3 major factors that will determine the impact of PTSD and the recovery from Critical Stress for you in your careers.
1. PTSD is a mental injury, not an illness. It is a result of you risking your life for others. It needs to be seen as a probable consequence of your duties the same as a physiucal injury is.
2. The STIGMA around PTSD only exists when we aren’t making it a common topic of conversation.
3. PTSD and Critical Stress impact are 100% curable and you definitely can recover fully if you are prepared to do the work.
I hope you enjoy the video and most of all take care of yourselves.
