Do you feel safe or scared to sit next to a veteran at school and work? There is such a misunderstanding about violence, mental illness, veterans, PTSD and sexual assaults in the classroom and in the workplace. Dr. Applewhite is joined by Chip Stoecker, Vietnam War Veteran, students and teachers to discuss ways to diminish the stereotypes around those diagnosed with PTSD, epileptic seizures, and other invisible disabilities.Most critical, is how we can learn and share with each other ways to minimize the fear about violence associated with those diagnosed with mental illness.
