National PTSD Awareness Day 2020
It’s normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after a traumatic event. On the 27th of June, National PTSD Awareness Day is a day dedicated to creating awareness regarding PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). On this day, organizations that work with employees, consumers, and patients at risk for the condition work to get information about symptoms and treatments for it out to the public in the hopes that when more people know about the disease more people who suffer from it will get treatment. June is PTSD Awareness Month. During PTSD Awareness Month, and throughout the entire year, help raise awareness about the many different PTSD treatment options.
In 2010, Senator Kent Conrad pushed to get official recognition of PTSD via a “day of awareness” in tribute to a North Dakota National Guard. In 2014 the Senate designated the whole month of June as PTSD Awareness Month. (Based on Wikipedia)
What is PTSD:
PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) is a mental health problem that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault.
In the US, 6.8% of adults will experience PTSD in their lifetimes with women twice as likely as men to experience it (10.4% to 5%) frequently as a result of sexual trauma. There are currently about 8 million people in the United States with PTSD.
