Not talking about those dark times in the hope they will fade rarely works.
As time passes suppressed feelings

website was created it had a single two-purpose goal: Allow veterans to understand the underlying reasons for PTSD;
and, to facilitate the opening of an honest discussion about how it has impacted their lives.
In seven years,
more than half a million veterans and family members have turned to this website for basic information. Now, to make
that process even easier, we are please to recommend and endorse a short 51 minute film -- All The Way Home.
It is the policy of the PTSD Help Network not to endorse commercial products related to PTSD or its treatment.
We don't sell mugs, T-Shirts, Mouse pads, or the like. Yet, we feel All The Way Home, available
for download for a modest $4.99, is a product worthy of our recommendation.
For veterans and their families --
this is the film they need to watch together. It will help start the dialogue needed to heal the unseen wounds
