Last Wednesday’s episode of The Today Show featured a video package about the stigma surrounding women’s mental health. Included in the video was Mandy Eagler ’16, a Penn State alumna who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder stemming from her time serving in Afghanistan with the United States military.

Eagler’s full story was published in a recent edition of AlumnInsider. She took courses via Penn State World Campus while she was overseas and attended Penn State Shenango when she came back to the U.S. She has since become an advocate for female veterans who suffer from PTSD.

Earlier this month, Eagler graduated from Penn State and served as Shenango’s commencement speaker.
