Overcoming Battle Scars

As a 26-year-old man dealing with post war mental illness, I know firsthand the challenges that come with navigating life after experiencing trauma. It’s not easy to open up about what I’ve been through, but I’ve learned that seeking support and connecting with others who have similar experiences has been crucial to my healing journey. I want to encourage everyone in a similar situation to reach out for help and to know that it’s okay to not be okay. There is strength in vulnerability, and together, we can work towards overcoming the battle scars that war has left on our mental health.
