PTSD Awareness Month

PTSD Awareness Month

There are currently about 12 million people in the United States with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Even though PTSD treatments work, most people who have PTSD don’t get the help they need.

June is PTSD Awareness Month. Help spread the word that effective PTSD treatments are available. Everyone with PTSD—whether they are veterans or civilian survivors of sexual assault, serious accidents, natural disasters, or other traumatic events—needs to know that treatments work and can lead to a better quality of life.

PTSD is not always obvious. And despite its invisibility, there are many misconceptions and fears about the condition, particularly for veterans. A range of 11-30% of veterans have PTSD, depending on when and where they served.

Our remarkable staff members assist veterans and people challenged by PTSD as well as other life-altering obstacles like homelessness, substance use, and mental illness.

June 27 is PTSD Screening Day, and we encourage others to let people know about this.

The National Center for PTSD and Mental Health America have PTSD self-assessment tools available online. For additional resources, please visit Home Base.
