We are sharing this new project called “Effects of Trauma”. We will be sharing a series of interviews and information related to a few mental disorders associated with trauma.
Today we will start off with the person who inspired this mini-series. Jomalier Viera-Martinez is a long-time childhood friend, who is now an Airman in the United States Air Force. He contacted me to better understand how the brain changes after trauma. Specifically how Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) manifests in the brain. Here he shares his experience and how he has dealt with the disorder.
If you have any questions on mental health, support resources, and the brain’s biology feel free to reach out.
Stay safe and “may the force be with you”!
Filmed on: January 30th, 2020
“Dedicated to anyone out there struggling with PTSD no matter how big or insignificant you think it might be.”
