National Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month

National PTSD Awareness Month

 

Help Raise PTSD Awareness

There are currently about 12 million people in the United States with PTSD.

Even though PTSD treatments work, most people who have PTSD don't get the help they need. June is PTSD Awareness Month. Help us spread the word that effective PTSD treatments are available. Everyone with PTSD—whether they are Veterans or civilian survivors of sexual assault, serious accidents, natural disasters, or other traumatic events—needs to know that treatments really do work and can lead to a better quality of life.

During PTSD Awareness Month, and throughout the entire year, help raise awareness about the many different PTSD treatment options.
