    June is post-traumatic stress awareness (PTSD) month. The aim is to educate, reduce stigma, and provide hope.  We’ve produced a list of resources to help you learn more.

    Anyone can experience PTSD after a trauma, which is a shocking, terrifying, or dangerous event.  PTSD is a diagnosed mental health disorder that causes you to relive a traumatic event over and over and experience constant fear, anxiety, as well as sadness. This can have a negative impact on your daily life activities and interaction with others. Like any other treatable condition, there is hope.  The first step is to identify the source of the trauma.  A trained mental health professional can facilitate a diagnosis as well as a treatment plan. Your friends and family can also play a role in helping you rediscover the best version of you.  Here are some resources to help you get started.
