June is #PTSD Awareness Month.
We want to encourage everyone to spread the word and raise awareness of PTSD 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 if they get worse, you may have Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Discover the facts.
Start with PTSD Basics, key information about trauma, PTSD and treatment options. For a more advanced overview, watch our PTSD 101 Course: PTSD Overview. We offer many free, in-depth Continuing Education Courses for Professionals as well.
Watch and learn.
Take the mystery out of PTSD treatment. Hear from Veterans and their clinicians at AboutFace. Or, take advantage of technology with PTSD Coach Online ormobile apps to help you manage PTSD symptoms.
Help someone. Help yourself.
Do you want to find out if you have PTSD or talk about treatment options? Take action for yourself or someone you care about. Learn where to get help for PTSD.
