In recognition of PTSD Awareness Month, our Exhibitions Team shares a closer look at Depicting The Invisible: A Portrait Series of Veterans Suffering from PTSD. Each week, hear from a featured Veteran in their own words about their experiences with Post Traumatic Stress. Depicting The Invisible shines a light on these Veterans as they share their personal narratives in order to help other Veterans tell their own stories and seek treatment when they need it most.
Danielle never deployed overseas. Her PTSD stems from Military Sexual Assault (MSA). Danielle shares that, “PTSD from MSA is treated totally different from PTSD from combat. Our stories are very private. But I’m telling my story for my daughter and my daughter’s daughter.”
