July 15, 2022



Season 2, episode 7 of “Mental Health Trailblazers, Psychiatric Nurses Speak Up!” is available at

On this week’s episode our host, Indrias Kassaye and MFP doctoral Fellow April Ames-Chase discuss the psychiatric mental health impact that serving in a war zone had on her and how she was able to overcome the PTSD that initially she didn’t even realize she was suffering from. Her own lived experiences have influenced her research interests which today focus on Black female Iraqi War veterans and their experiences adjusting to life back home in the United States.
