Dr. Shaili Jain is a psychiatrist and PTSD specialist at one of America’s top V.A. hospitals. She joins host Krys Boyd to talk about how the condition affects many aspects of sufferers’ lives – and about cutting-edge research that’s providing hope.

In this photo taken Thursday, July 29, 2010, Gina, a highly trained bomb-sniffing dog with the U.S. military, joins Staff Sgt. Chris Kench on a sofa at the kennel at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. Gina was a playful 2-year-old German shepherd when she went to Iraq but months of door-to-door searches and noisy explosions left her cowering and fearful. After she came home to Peterson Air Force Base in June 2009, a military veterinarian diagnosed her with post-traumatic stress disorder. Ed Andrieski/AP Photo
