June is PTSD Awareness Month

There are currently about 12 million people in the United States living with PTSD.

Even though PTSD treatments are effective and accessible, most people don’t get the help they need. Help spread the word that PTSD treatments are available. Everyone with PTSD—whether they are a Veteran or civilian survivor of sexual assault, serious accident, natural disaster, or other traumatic event—needs to know that treatments really do work and can lead to a better quality of life.

Help the National Center for PTSD raise awareness about the many different treatment options available. Make the pledge to Raise PTSD Awareness

For more information, visit the PTSD website.
