Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Month!
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a mental illness that an individual can have after witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, combat, or sexual assault. Anyone can experience PTSD, including children. Some of the symptoms of PTSD include flashbacks, new negative beliefs about yourself, avoidance, and paranoia. Often, PTSD can occur with other mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, and drug and alcohol abuse. Remember, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is not a sign of weakness!
