Helping Kenyan soldiers battle war trauma

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health problem that can happen after an event like war, often leading to substance abuse, violence or even suicide.

Kenyan troops have been involved in some of the continent's most dangerous conflict zones, including Somalia.

However, some within and outside the force say there is a lack of support for those psychologically affected by their missions.

Now different public service groups have decided to take action and offer support and raise awareness for those affected by PTSD.
