I ran across a story this week about Tyler Skluzacek, a senior at Macalester College, who was inspired by his dad with PTSD to create an app that could help veterans who suffer from night terrors. There’s always a shortage of good news going around, so I wanted to share this inspiring story with you all.
When Tyler was in middle school, his dad did a tour in Iraq and, like many of our veterans, came home with PTSD and night terrors. I can’t even imagine the difficulties this family faced! The inspiring part however is that Tyler–who is majoring in economics, computer science, and applied math–hasn’t forgotten the struggles his dad faced and is now working on a project to help veterans who suffer with PTSD. He joined forces with four other college students to create a mobile app that works with smartwatches and smartphones to help veterans who suffer with night terror get a better night’s sleep.
