Post Traumatic stress Disorder

Heard on ABC News radio this morning. A distressed call was replayed from a

policeman re PTSD who later suicided. Very emotional.

There are instances of PTSD among police and armed service members suffering

from this condition resulting in family breakdowns and in some cases suicides.

These people put their lives on the line in carrying out their sworn duties in the

protection of the public and in combat zones.

Not enough is being done to assist and rehabilitate these people to live a normal

Life when this condtion manifests itself.

These cases must be fully recognised and appropriate treatment and counselling

provided.
