June is PTSD Awareness Month

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– There are currently about 8 million people in the United States suffering from PTSD.

Many of our servicemembers return home with wounds that we cannot see, but they need our support more than ever.

The goal of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month is to spread awareness about PTSD symptoms and effects and to amplify the discussion about diagnosis, treatment, and care for those suffering from the effects of trauma.

We must ensure that everyone with PTSD—whether they are our combat Veterans or civilian survivors of sexual assault, serious accidents, natural disasters, or other traumatic events—have access to treatments that can help them lead a better quality of life.
