Podcast: PTSD and Defence personnel – fighting the battle at home
“We need help.” It’s been the plea of thousands of former defence personnel for decades now as they struggled with the transition to civilian life and mental health issues caused by their time in the military. In this fascinating installment of the Law & Life podcast, TGB partner Tim White and clinical psychiatrist Dr Nick Ford discuss the impact of PTSD on Defence people and their access to help and compensation.
Tim White is an expert in military compensation and helps former and current Defence personnel from all across the country.
Dr Nick Ford is a clinical psychiatrist, specialising in PTSD treatment, and is a senior clinical lecturer at the University of Adelaide.
