PTSD Awareness Day - 06/27/23

PTSD Awareness Day serves as an important platform to highlight the impact of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on individuals and communities. One of the key objectives of this day is to increase public understanding and knowledge about PTSD, dispel misconceptions, and encourage empathy and support for those affected by the disorder. By dedicating a specific day to focus on PTSD awareness, we can promote a sense of unity and solidarity among survivors, families, mental health professionals, and the wider society.

 Posttraumatic stress disorder can have a profound and lasting impact on the lives of individuals who experience it. The symptoms can range from intrusive memories and flashbacks of the traumatic event to heightened anxiety, depression, and difficulty in maintaining relationships and daily functioning. Through education and awareness initiatives on PTSD Awareness Day, we can work towards reducing stigma and promoting early intervention. It is crucial to emphasize that seeking help and support is not a sign of weakness but a courageous step towards healing and recovery.

 Awareness Day also serves as a reminder of the importance of providing adequate resources and support to individuals with PTSD. To learn more about PTSD, evidenced based treatment options, and to take a PTSD screener please visit:
