The United States Senate established PTSD Awareness Day in 2010 following then-Sen. Kent Conrad’s efforts to designate a day of awareness as a tribute to Army Staff Sgt. Joe Biel of the North Dakota National Guard. Biel suffered from PTSD and took his life in April 2007 after returning to North Dakota following his second tour of duty in the Iraq War. Biel’s birthday, June 27th, was chosen to mark PTSD Awareness Day and honor his memory.
Although PTSD was once a condition that was attributed only to returning combat veterans, more and more the condition is diagnosed in those who have experienced violent crime or lived through catastrophic events. According to PTSD United, 20% of adults in the United States who have experienced a traumatic event suffer from PTSD.

Drinking Has Surged During The Pandemic. Do You Know The Signs Of Addiction?

One of the earliest signs of a budding substance use problem is a pattern of relying on alcohol or other substances to cope with life. These habits can be subtle and are often socially encouraged.
If you or someone you love is drinking more frequently, in larger amounts, seems defensive if approached with concern, or is increasingly preoccupied with wanting to drink, then it is time to seek help from an expert.
Treatment professionals are not going to judge or label a person as an alcoholic or addict. They are there to provide information and to talk honestly about healthy vs unhealthy behaviors around substance use. The counselor’s role is to help a person examine the impact of alcohol or other substances in that person’s life and, if someone chooses to, they will help a person make changes.
Don’t wait until you have lost control of alcohol or other substances and life is falling apart. An early response to a growing problem can make a difference in preventing later suffering. Experts say a bit of extra drinking isn't a problem for many people, but they recommend watching out for specific behaviors that signal addiction.

You don’t need special training to have an open, authentic conversation about mental health – and often, just talking about it can be the first important step in understanding where someone is with their mental health. By letting someone know you're there and simply listening, you can provide a supportive environment for them to open up.
