On ‘Psychology Behind the Headlines,’ hosts Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu, and guest Erin Cain discuss complex ways PTSD can impact loved ones, particularly children who may find themselves forced into a caregiving role.

The Family Battleground

PTSD can change the entire dynamic of a household. Loved ones may find themselves walking on eggshells or taking on roles beyond their capacity to cope.

A Child’s Burden

Children of veterans with PTSD often take on adult responsibilities. This can lead to their own emotional struggles, stress, and even mental health crises.

Resources are Key

Organizations like the Elizabeth Dole Foundation are working to provide much-needed support for families of veterans. Therapy, support groups, and other resources can make a real difference in helping all family.
