Ivan Castro, program manager of the Undergraduate Trauma Research Training Program with Falk College, was featured in a segment on News Channel 9’s Bridge Street to discuss PTSD Awareness Month.
In the United States, eight percent of the population suffers from PTSD. Castro shared with Bridge Street what post-traumatic stress disorder is. He states, “PTSD isn’t just one thing. To get diagnosed with PTSD is just a cluster of different symptoms that have a specific pattern.” He clarifies that everyone can get the disorder, but “for some people in the military, it’s more prevalent.”
