Sixty to 80 percent of victims of severe trauma will experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, better known as PTSD. According to the PTSD Foundation of America, PTSD affects eight percent of Americans, more than 24 million people annually, but numbers may be even higher as millions suffer without seeking help or are improperly treated. Despite its prevalence, the condition is largely misunderstood and as a result, often misdiagnosed. Author and filmmaker Charles Shaw, a PTSD sufferer himself, has released a 17-part film series in an EcoSalon exclusive running through March. “At Home in the Dark,” addresses both Shaw’s own battle with PTSD and the millions of others who suffer with it every day.
