June is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Month

Many are aware of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a mental health condition that affects three to four percent of all people in the United States, and more than 10 percent of U.S. military veterans. It is a condition many experience following a significant traumatic event, in this context defined as being a victim of or witness to a life-threatening event, serious injury, or sexual assault.

Following a traumatic event, if you or someone you care about is experiencing severe nightmares or intrusive waking flashbacks, constant anxiety or fear, persistent feelings of low self-worth, and detachment from others, you may be experiencing PTSD symptoms. You would benefit from looking into building supports and professional treatment to improve your quality of life. We listed information below and support-based resources for PTSD survivors.

As always, feel free to reach out to the Employee Assistance Program for further resources and support for all mental health matters.
