‘My Particular Disability Is not Visible’

You wouldn’t know by looking at him that Christopher Miller was disabled.

“My particular disability is not visible,” says Miller, an outreach coordinator with the Road Home Program at Rush. “I went to war, I saw combat, but when I came back it took several years, quite frankly, to figure that I did, in fact, have a disability. There was something going on.”

The Marine Corps veteran sought help for his post-traumatic stress disorder, the kind of help that he and the Road Home Program provide for fellow veterans and their families. And it made all the difference.

“Once I got treatment and therapy and different options like that,” he says, “it turned my life around.”
