Invisible injury: Beyond PTSD [illustrated story]

By , , and /

Editor’s note: Over the last few months, the Public Insight Network has been talking to veterans about their experiences moving on from war.

symbolia-wordmark_WEBWe’ve turned our attention to the idea of moral injury and the limits of the PTSD diagnosis in explaining what happens to many people who go through the experience of war. To better explain moral injury, we collaborated with public radio station WBUR and Symbolia, a tablet magazine of illustrated journalism, to produce a comic book that describes and defines the topic.
