June 27 PTSD Awareness Day

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a very real and challenging mental health issue. Anyone can experience it. It changes how the body responds to stress, making it difficult to push through otherwise acute stressors. PTSD provides a framework of how individuals may respond to trauma and how it manifests in their life through various symptoms. It’s imperative to understand PTSD to help support those who may be going through a trauma or experienced one in the past.
