PTSD On HealthyPlace TV

Do you ever wonder what happens to our military vets when they return home? For many, life is very difficult.

Tonight (Tuesday), we're going to be focusing on "Soldiers and the Hidden Battle: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder." Our guest is a vet who will be sharing his experiences with PTSD and what he's doing to recover. We'll also have the executive producer of "In Their Boots," a series of web documentaries featuring soldiers and their battle with PTSD. Plus HealthyPlace Medical Director and Board-Certified Psychiatrist, Dr. Harry Croft, will be discussing the latest research on PTSD and the most effective methods of treatment. Over the past 8 years, Dr. Croft has evaluated over 4,000 vets for PTSD.

As always, you'll be able to ask our guests your questions too. The show starts at 5:30p PT, 7:30 CT, 8:30 ET and airs live on our website.

In the second half of the show, you get to ask Dr. Harry Croft, your personal mental health questions.

Alternative Mental Health Treatments

Over the last two weeks, we've noticed a pickup in traffic to our Alternative Mental Health Community. As you might expect, people are interested in natural treatments for depression and anxiety as well as other mental health conditions. But they've also been visiting "Still My Mind," a special section written by Adrian Newington. The site offers inspiration to others who are seeking change within. Check it out and let us know what you think.
