In this episode, Brad sat down with our team member Caitlin to discuss his time in the Navy. Like the highs and lows of the tide, Brad's experience in the Navy had its ups and downs. He shares his experience with PTSD and how his lived experience prepared him to work with returned service-people and those who have experienced complex trauma. There are many pearls hidden in the depths of this episode, though it has a medical focus, Brad shares advice that Caitlin believes everyone should hear.
