Breaking Silence is a web series that strives to create a community for those suffering from post-traumatic stress across all boundaries, and to educate all of us, because we all have been or will be touched by it in some way, whether we suffer it ourselves, or know someone who does.
PTSD is not a military phenomenon. In fact, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is not a “disorder” at all. It is a normal reaction to an abnormal event.
Dealing with PTS is a challenge that one cannot overcome alone, so we would like to create a community, and a resource that may help. There are no simple fixes, but if we can help people understand how to manage the trauma, create a dialogue, let people know that they’re not alone, that what they’re going through is perfectly normal, then maybe we can move towards PTS being something we all can live with. Because the alternative is not an option.
