27 pages12 minutes


More than 550,000 veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan (along with hundreds of thousands who bravely served in other wars and conflicts) are now dealing each day with the impact of Combat PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).

"PTSD: A Fifteen Minute Guide to Combat Related Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder" is an easy-to-read book which quickly covers key topics about this disorder including what combat PTSD is, what it "looks" like, how PTSD changes the brain, treatment options, where to get help, and where to find additional info and support.

It is a perfect way for veterans, loved ones, and those interested in supporting our nation's heroes and their families to begin getting an understanding of PTSD.

This book is a project of Family Of a Vet, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping veterans and their families learn how to cope with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), TBI (traumatic brain injury) and life after combat through real-world, plain language education and resources for heroes, families, and communities.

It's authors, Brannan P. Vines and Heather A. Hummert, are both leaders within the organization, recognized subject-matter experts, and most importantly, have experienced life with PTSD first-hand as wives of two of our country's 550,000+ combat heroes who are currently struggling each day with the disorder.
