CHIPMAN -- The Lifetree Café, at the Scotch Presbyterian Church, will explore the issue of post-traumatic stress disorder with ‘Wounded Warriors: When War Comes Home’ Monday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m.

The program will explore post-traumatic stress disorder in the lives of military veterans and provide helpful resources and strategies for coping with PTSD.

“This program will focus on men and women returning from military service,but post-traumatic stress disorder also affects civilians,” says Lifetree representative Craig Cable. “This program will be helpful for anyone who has experienced trauma.”

The program features an exclusive film of a veteran who saw his friend killed in combat. His return to civilian life was disrupted by lingering mental distress, violent tendencies, and relationship problems. He eventually found hope and stability.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
