Marriage Suffers Under the Strain of PTSD

28 May 2007

Produced By Karen Brown

Anna and Peter Mohan are a couple in their 20s who married just before Peter went to Iraq with the Army. When he came back, Peter was a different man - morose, withdrawn and, eventually, suicidal.

He was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In their own words, Anna and Peter talk about how PTSD almost destroyed their marriage. Peter is getting help, but their future still feels precarious.
