PTSD GOES UNTREATED
While there are probably other conditions that are not properly treated, PTSD in my opinion is among the most. It’s not that they do not try, or have ill intentions. They just don’t know how to treat it properly. This is because they do not understand it on a professional or personal basis. The severity of this condition is much more then any literature can attempt to explain.
PTSD in my opinion and personal experience is one of the most misunderstood psychological conditions that remain for the most part untreated. PTSD is not a new condition, however, given the huge amount of veterans returning with this, it is not something that should or could be ignored.
