Big news! We’re expanding the radio show — again. Recently we renamed the radio show you’re used to – YOUR LIFE AFTER TRAUMA – and have now titled it, CHANGING DIRECTION. Don’t worry, we’re still covering everything you need to know about how to move forward in your life after trauma. In addition, we’ll be broadening the content to address more topics about rebuilding your life and changing direction from trauma to triumph.
Now we’re expanding the show from once to twice a week. In an effort to bring you even more ideas for how to redefine who you are and reclaim how you live, we’ll now have two shows, each 30 minutes long on Mondays and Wednesdays, 2pm EST/11am PST.
Here’s what we’ll cover next:

After months in combat and in service to our country, many soldiers return home and find themselves lost, suffering from emotional and psychological turmoil. Unable to cope with the loss of a comrade or life-threatening events that they’ve experienced, suicide seems like the only option. For Andrew O’Brien, that’s exactly what he thought. He chose to take his own life. But, immediately after swallowing his carefully designed poison cocktail, he realized it was a mistake. Now, as a survivor, Andrew is telling his story to the world, hoping to help families understand what their soldiers have went through and prevent them from making the same mistake that he almost made. Join me this week on CHANGING DIRECTION as we talk with Andrew O’Brien, founder of Welcoming Your Soldier Home (WYSH). Andrew is a true military hero who is using his suicide attempt to change the lives and direction of fellow combat soldiers
About Andrew: A year after returning from my 12 month deployment to Iraq, my battle with PTSD almost won. I attempted to take my own life but was given a second chance, with that second chance I have decide to use my experience to help others benefit. I speak openly about how I felt or what I thought on that night in an effort to spread the message that with support and community, we can win this battle on PTSD… All we have to do is work together!
