Shell shock became the first form of traumatic war neurosis in 1914. Soldiers traumatized by the constant gassing and shelling in the trenches of the western front began to suffer severe psychological and physiological symptoms that neurologists couldn’t explain. My presentation would discuss the marginalization that mentally ill soldiers suffered in a military medical system tailored for physical injuries.
