PTSD and Firefighters with Carl Waggett

Carl has been a full-time firefighter for 15 years and he is currently the acting captain of his firehouse. Carl talks about his denial that PTSD was real, to why it's so important to get the help you need.

Carl recently had a dear friend end his life and now Carl wants to helps others to not feel the despair and hopeless that PTSD often inflicts.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is very common, and does not only affect first responder and military personnel. 

Carl talks about the importance to not give in to being alone or to push others away when your struggling.
