The effects of PTSD on returning soldiers

The effects of PTSD on returning soldiers

Since the East Timor intervention in 1999, more than 70,000 Australians have been deployed into war zones, and it's estimated that up to 20 per cent of those could be subject to the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

This ANZAC Day we catch up with the Director of the Clinical Psychology Program, Associate Professor Maria Kangas, to talk about this hidden casualty of war.

Anyone showing symptoms of PTSD can contact Beyond Blue via their website, or call on 1300 22 4636.
