Invisible Wounds – Mental Health Issues During the Civil War

This digital program examines the extreme psychological stress suffered by the average Civil War soldier and compares that experience to today’s understanding and treatment of trauma-induced mental health issues. Special emphasis will be given to the condition we now call Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Hilda Koontz holds an MA in Counseling Psychology from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul MN and has devoted more than 20 years of her professional career to counseling.
