Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is something that can happen to anyone. You do not need to be a combat soldier, early responder or engaged in any other high stress profession to suffer from the effects of trauma. In fact, it is now known that trauma, and its aftermath, affect more young people than was previously believed.
June 27 is National Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Day and, once again, Congress has named June as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Month.
PTSD is a mental health problem that can occur after someone has been exposed to a single traumatic event or multiple traumatic events, such as sexual or physical assault, natural or man-made disaster, and war-related combat stress. Symptoms of PTSD include persistent intrusive thoughts and distressing dreams about the traumatic event, triggered emotional responses to reminders of the trauma, efforts to avoid thinking or talking about the trauma, and persistent hypervigilance for cues that indicate additional danger or trauma re-occurring.
