If you were to ask the man on the street who he thinks suffers from PTSD, he’d say: “Veterans”. It’s the obvious answer. They have seen and done so much when they’ve been on tours of duty. But what they don’t do is ask for help. It’s just not done because it is viewed, wrongly, as weak. Even if sufferers do seek help, they don’t always get the right sort. Doctors will prescribe pills, they’ll advise counselling. But soldiers don’t want to go to a counsellor offering what’s perceived as too positive – with someone focusing on what makes them happy. They want to see someone who understands what they have been through. Someone who accepts the harsh and raw realities of what they have seen and done, who doesn’t really care about a few swear words and hardness perhaps.
