June is “National Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Month”
United In Service Good Deed During PTSD Awareness Month, and throughout the entire year, help raise awareness about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and reach out to make a difference in the lives of veterans.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is one of the most common mental health challenges that veterans face. In some cases, it can be even more debilitating than physical wounds.
Some PSTD factors also include veterans’ stress related to transitions that come with reintegration into civilian life after serving.
Many veterans don’t know they are suffering from mental health issues due to the stereotype that mental illness exists only in extreme circumstances. In reality, it is not uncommon.
