Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

A recent RAND Report finds that one in five Iraq and Afghanistan veterans suffer from PTSD or major depression. This week on Florida Matters, we take a look at how these injuries are treated at the bay area's two VA hospitals - and we'll meet a local Iraqi War veteran who knows the experience first-hand.
