Alex suffered multiple events in his life that contributed towards his Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) but it was hearing a close friend recall their story as a rape victim that led him to experience overwhelming fear. He tried to hide the effect PTSD was having on his life while building a successful career, but he was suffering in isolation when no one was watching.
Alex sought counselling and was diagnosed with PTSD and found recovery. He is now CEO of Fearless Outreach, an organisation dedicated to improving the knowledge around the illness called PTSD.
