The American scientist talked about the road leading to death of veterans and war hands

The increase in the number of suicides and attempts to harm veterans and war veterans in Azerbaijan in recent days is regrettable. Research suggests that these veterans continue to exhibit such abnormal behaviors as a result of the trauma they received in war.

It should be noted that similar events can be found in countries where wars have been experienced in all periods of history. The syndrome, which manifests itself with mental, emotional and spiritual damage due to the impact of trauma received by war veterans in battles, was first diagnosed in the United States. So, after the Vietnam war that took place in 1964-1975, hundreds of war veterans committed suicide. Experts have revealed the invisible side of what happened with the term “Vietnam syndrome”. We had a conversation with an American scientist who investigated the issue on the spot and devoted his whole life to the examination and treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) syndrome.

45 years of scientific research on post-traumatic stress disorder cases and the author of more than 350 publications, including 28 books and monographs, Life Honorary Member of the American Psychiatric Association, Executive Director of the National Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Center of the US Department of Veterans Affairs, Prof.Dr. Matthew Friedman “Report”In an interview with the local office, he talked about the road leading war veterans to death and the known and unknown in this field.

The professor said he has dedicated his career to identifying the causes and treatments of post-traumatic stress disorder and advocating for people whose psychological condition has been damaged by war and other traumatic experiences.

Saying that the center he directs is the world’s leading research and education center for PTSD, the professor added that as a result of serious research conducted there and services provided to veterans in the United States, a significant reduction in the number of people suffering from this problem was observed.

M. Friedman’s book “After the War Zone – A Practical Guide for Returning Troops and Their Families”, in which he describes the experience and treatment procedures with veterans returning from the war, is written in the post-war countries. He said that it is an important tool for specialists.

He said that PTSD syndrome manifests itself in most cases with very terrible consequences and, if untreated, condemns its victim to death: “The risk of trauma to the human brain has been a part of our lives since we evolved as a species. As time passes after a traumatic event, it’s natural to think that your mind and body are healing and moving. However, symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder can appear months or years later. Although it can look and feel like depression or anger, PTSD is different. PTSD is a mental health condition that begins with a traumatic event and causes severe anxiety in the brain and body. The traumatized brain begins with symptoms and takes over your entire life, and you relive memories of the traumatic event as if it were happening for the first time. Fear can cause you to feel guilty or suspicious. These emotions can manifest themselves physically in the form of tremors, headaches, palpitations and panic attacks.

The professor said that there is a cure for the disease as a result of the gained experiences: “The good news is that there are effective treatments. In this regard, special state programs should be drawn up, appropriate resources should be prepared to diagnose and treat combatants and civilians who were traumatized in the war zone.
