St. Paul Lutheran Church will host a discussion about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, featuring an area psychiatrist and a retired Army official.
The Journey Home will be held on Tuesday, April 2, from 7-8:30 p.m. at St. Paul Lutheran, 2136 Brady St., Davenport.
Dr. Jeffrey Weyeneth, a psychiatric hospitalist with Genesis Medical Center, Davenport, and Command Sergeant Major Stephen Blake, who retired in January from the U.S. Army Sustainment Command, will present. Pastor Dan Kuckuck will also join the discussion.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a type of anxiety disorder. It can occur after a person has seen or experienced a traumatic event that involved the threat of injury or death.
PTSD can occur at any age. It can follow a natural disaster such as a flood or fire, or events such as an assault, domestic abuse, prison stay, or war. Veterans returning home from war often experience PTSD.
This presentation will include information about key symptoms of PTSD, how it is diagnosed, and treatment options. It is part of a series of mental health discussions at St. Paul.
For more information, contact Joel Moore, director of faith formation, at 563-326-3547.

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night. Phyllis Diller sent the audience with her offbeat humor. And send them she did! It was Miss Diller's third appearance in the Quad-Cities area.
1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
