Series: Defining present-traumatic stress
By STARS AND STRIPES Published: September 2, 2013
About this series
Stars and Stripes examines the mental health of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan and how they cope with war’s internal burden while deployed. Stories will explore the work of psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and chaplains to reduce the combat-related stress of troops; the efforts of senior officers to balance the needs of soldiers with the demands of the U.S. mission; and the fear of asking for help that still exists within the Army.
This series is produced with the support of a Rosalynn Carter Fellowship for Mental Health Journalism.
