June 27 is national PTSD Screening Day. People of all ages and backgrounds can experience post-traumatic stress disorder after trauma. In recognition of PTSD Awareness Month in June, it is crucial to understand that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can develop in individuals who have experienced shocking, scary, or dangerous events. Most people naturally recover from initial symptoms, but some may continue to experience difficulties and receive a diagnosis of PTSD. Curious if you may have symptoms of PTSD?

06/13/2024

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can occur following the experience or witnessing of a traumatic event. Occasionally, circumstances arise that are uncommon or particularly alarming, dreadful, or distressing. Instances may include accidents, abuse, natural disasters, warfare, or someone passing away around you.

PTSD is not always brought on by events as major as this. It is valid if you are experiencing symptoms of PTSD from family conflict, workplace drama, or other non-life-threatening situations.

Not all wounds are visible. A quick, easy and confidential way to determine if you may be experiencing PTSD is to take a screening: https://screening.mhanational.org/screening-tools/ptsd/
