Announcements

June is PTSD Awerness Month

 
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, more than 8 million people in the United States currently have PTSD. Posttraumatic stress disorder can develop after an individual goes through or sees a life-threatening event. PTSD, while often thought of as affecting active military and Veterans, is not limited to warfighters or first responders. Civilian survivors of sexual assault, serious accidents, natural disasters, or other traumatic events can also experience PTSD.
