No one is immune from trauma! Nearly everyone will experience some form of trauma. Accidents, mental or physical abuse, violence, injury, illness, or the death of a loved one can cause post-traumatic stress (“PTS”). If the PTS is serious and not resolved, it can become post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”), and its victims may suffer devastating effects.
PTSD does not discriminate. It can take down the strong and the weak, and change behavior, cause addictions, destroy marriages and families, and even take the lives of its victims. As many as 22 veterans per day take their own lives, due to PTSD.
In TRIGGERED, renowned trauma expert Victor Marx, himself a victim of PTSD, takes the viewer on a journey to understand PTSD, its symptoms and treatments, and to find hope for recovery. Unscripted, raw and authentic interviews with PTSD victims and insightful interviews with PTSD experts reveal how victims of PTSD can free themselves from its life-crippling effects, and offer encouragement and hope for those who suffer from PTSD and for those who love them.
