Join Dr. Frances Hurd as she explores the topic of post-traumatic stress disorder comparing three case studies from the First World War with three from the charity Combat Stress.
Some men returned home with no medical diagnosis of mental distress, but they and their families faced years of suffering. This affected more of our family members than we realise. Come along to this fascinating talk to learn more and bring your questions with you.
