June is PTSD Awareness Month
The National Center for PTSD has designated June as PTSD Awareness Month, aiming to spread the word about posttraumatic stress disorder and its effective treatments.
After a trauma or life-threatening event, it is common to have reactions such as upsetting memories of the event, increased jumpiness, or trouble sleeping. If these reactions do not go away or get worse, you may have Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). About 6 out of every 10 men (60%) and 5 out of every 10 women (50%) experience at least one trauma in their lives. During that trauma, you are more likely to develop PTSD if you were seriously injured during the event, the trauma was long-lasting or very severe, or you were directly exposed to the trauma as a victim or a witness. The PTSD website links to various helpful videos and discusses treatment options including different therapies and medications that can help.
