Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has a long history among military cohorts. Over the years service members and Veterans, alike, have created many MYTHS about PTSD. Dr. Harry McCleary (Navy Veteran and licensed clinical psychologist) lists his TOP FIVE Veteran Myths about PTSD and debunks each one.
VETERANS MYTH #1: PTSD is made up or doesn’t exist
VETERAN MYTH #2: You have to be in combat to have PTSD
VETERAN MYTH #3: If you experience a trauma you will have PTSD
VETERAN MYTH #4: People that have PTSD are weak
VETERAN MYTH #5: I think about my trauma so I must have PTSD
BONUS MYTH: PTSD lasts forever and can’t be treated
