How Do These Two Student Veterans Deal with PTSD in the Classroom?
The Department of Veterans Affairs says 61 percent of all men and 51 percent of all women will experience a traumatic event at some point in their lives.
For two of those men, Indiana University Southeast students Logan Walsh and Richard Weaver, trauma they experienced while serving in Iraq has metastasized into post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD.
How they and others afflicted with PTSD deal with it is the subject of this article by Ethan Smith, a staff writer for The Horizon, Indiana University Southeast’s student newspaper.
