June 2024: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month

PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that may appear following a traumatic or deeply stressful event. Even when PTSD does not develop following a traumatic event, it is important to be aware that trauma can have a deep and lasting impact on individuals and communities, and mitigation efforts should be made where and when possible. Trauma-related distress can be profoundly debilitating.
