Ignoring an issue just because it's obvious does a disservice to those who are suffering from these mental issues.

Imagine being a soldier and struggling with PTSD and other issues tied to the horrific things you see on a daily basis, and then a civilian goes "yeah well water is wet". These are humans, not machines. We need to collectively acknowledge this and talk about it.

So easy to say that when you're sitting in the comfort of your home far away from conflict.

We can't just collectively say "yeah PTSD sucks, but it's worth it" and just brush it off. We need to acknowledge the INSANE sacrifices these defenders have given every single day, and ensure they have the full appreciation, support and treatment for when they finally come back home.
