Exploring post-traumatic stress

Exploring post-traumatic stress

The impact of post-traumatic stress disorder will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Café, 3101 Campus Drive.

The program "Wounded Warriors: When War Comes Home" will explore post-traumatic stress disorder in the lives of military veterans and provide helpful resources and strategies for coping with PTSD.

"This program will focus on men and women returning from military service, but post-traumatic stress disorder also affects civilians," said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. "This program will be helpful for anyone who has experienced trauma."

The program features the filmed story of a veteran who saw his buddy killed in combat. His return to civilian life was disrupted by lingering mental distress, violent tendencies and relationship problems. He eventually found hope and stability. Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
