Yesterday June 27, was #PTSDAwarenessDay, an opportunity to remember that PTSD can affect anyone, and be caused by any traumatic event. There are effective treatments for PTSD, although many people don’t get the help they need.

Traumatic events causing PTSD can include but are not limited to: combat, sexual assault, serious accidents, natural disasters, physical abuse, and threats of injury or death.
