National PTSD Awareness Day Is June 27
In 2010, Congress designated June 27 as National Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Day. In 2014, June became National PTSD Awareness Month. This year, the National Center for PTSD (NCPTSD), an agency of the Veterans Administration, invites people from all over the country to mark the day and honor vets whose wounds are real but unseen by:
- Learning about PTSD — The National Center for PTSD leads the nation in research on PTSD to advance the clinical care and social welfare of veterans and others who have suffered trauma. The center can help you understand PTSD basics and treatment options. For professional researchers and healthcare providers, the center offers free in-depth continuing education courses.
- Connecting — The NCPTSD helps those affected by PTSD get support from others and learn self-help strategies for managing their condition. It also helps concerned citizens take action to assist members of their community who may be at risk.
- Sharing— The NCPTSD’s Awareness campaign relies on folks just like you to spread the word. The center maintains social media accounts and publications to disseminate information that you can share with your neighbors.
