talks about living with her soldier husband's post-traumatic stress disorder.

The sounds and sights of war are not unfamiliar, brought to us by the media on a daily basis, albeit in a censored version. But what is not commonly reported is the trauma beyond the battlefield, as soldiers return home and struggle with the demons in their head...the memories, flashbacks and pain of what they have seen. And even less do we hear about how military post traumatic stress affects their loved ones.

Suicide attempts, heavy drinking, verbal abuse, debt; becoming homeless; Edi Stark speaks to Lyndsey about the 'Ripple Effect' of living with her husband's Military PTSD condition and how it nearly tore their marriage and family life apart.

Schizophrenia affects about one in a 100 people each year; two thirds of those diagnosed will go on to have further episodes throughout their lives. Sadly, it's a condition that sets alarm bells ringing- the very word schizophrenia is a stigma. Perhaps that's partly down to how it's been reported in the media. So what must it be like then to be the son or daughter of someone who suffers from this condition?

Frances's mum has suffered from Paranoid Schizophrenia all her life. Her behaviour and personality can alter dramatically and can

be very challenging and upsetting deal with. Edi Stark hears the 'Ripple Effect' of this condition on Frances from childhood to adulthood.
