The definition of PTSD, or "PTS" as some may refer to it as, is a psychiatric disorder that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, a serious accident, a terrorist act, war/combat, rape or other violent personal assault. Meaning, this can and will happen to people outside of the military, first responders and the like. This impacts everyone and it can often go unseen, as we typically don't relate a lot of our problems back to "PTSD". This week we welcome Candace from "Your Six", an organization that empowers and helps heroes and their families through confidential peer support, gatherings and social events. Her tactics are not typical or traditional, as being a first responder and veteran herself, she knows that talking to others in our fields works much better than some "old man/lady" from the local Critical Incident team. Her theory is that she, and others, can relate with the stresses of the day to day workflow in this profession. They understand what a person with PTSD is going through and have developed ways to circumvent the terror behind it. If you feel the need to reach out, even confidentially, look no further. These are trained professionals, in our professions, that can help you through those tough times, and give you a plan for a brighter future!
