Hope & Possibilities Podcast
Episode #22 Dr. Gregory Jantz Discusses PTSD and How to Overcome It
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a serious mental health challenge. But it can also be confusing – confusing for some professionals to correctly diagnose, and confusing for the one suffering from it. We know that PTSD almost certainly involves depression as well as anxiety. Both can appear independently, or simultaneously. In either case, PTSD can be debilitating, making the one suffering feeling like they need to withdraw, like there is no hope, that any social situation situation can instantly become an embarrassing and very uncomfortable place they need to escape from.
We often refer to military veterans, especially those returning from serious conflict and war, as being highly susceptible to PTSD. And that is very true. We need to take care of the mental health of our military members. But PTSD can occur to anyone. If there was trauma in the past, it can not only linger, but fester and cause increasingly more difficult challenges as one gets older.
In this podcast, Dr. Jantz explains what PTSD is, how it can affect us, and what we can do to overcome it.
