PTSD in the Spotlight
A sold out crowd gathered at the annual CMHA Luncheon in Swift Current on Wednesday. Fire Chief Denis Pilon was the keynote speaker and spoke of his own experience with PTSD and how he's dealt with the horrific images in his mind over the years after attending numerous accidents and fire emergencies.
Fire Chief Denis Pilon advises that anyone suffering from a traumatic experience should speak about it and not hold the feelings inside as this can lead to severe depression and often suicide in some cases.
