Jane 'takes the lid off' PTSD
When Jane met her husband Ben, a Rwanda and East Timor veteran, he was extroverted, got along with everybody and liked going out. Now he won’t leave the house and Jane can’t think of the last time they had people over.

Posttraumatic stress refers to a group of reactions that can occur after someone has experienced a traumatic event. It's common in the Australian community, not just veterans. Effective therapies are available to minimise its impact on you and your family.
