When Army veteran Ron Capps first exhibited symptoms of post traumatic stress he was unsure about what to do and where to turn. We take a look at his journey to get help and talk and speak with a military psychiatrist about the path to diagnosis and treatment of PTSD.
Ron Capps is a veteran of five conflicts, having served with the US Army and State Department in Rwanda, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq and Darfur. He came home scarred by what he witnessed, and turned to his keyboard for help processing his war stories.
