Jason Kander Opens Up About His PTSD So Others Know Recovery Is Possible
The former Army captain and Missouri secretary of state shares updates about his mental health, political career and more.
Since Jason Kander narrowly lost his bid for one of Missouri's U.S. Senate seats in 2016, he's focused on fighting voter suppression and helping veterans in need. Kander has been very public with his own PTSD and depression, which caused him to drop out of the 2019 Kansas City mayoral race. "If you look at portrayals of post-traumatic stress in the media ... most are people battling it," Kander said.
