June is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness month. Unfortunately, many of us will experience trauma in our lifetime. A traumatic event can be anything from assault, abuse, loss, illness or childhood neglect. Depending on the experience and the person, some may manage their symptoms or recover more easily. Long-lasting symptoms such as nightmares, trouble sleeping, anxiety, fear, depression or feeling emotionally numb may be indicators of PTSD. Take time to educate yourself and others about available treatment options. It’s never too soon – or too late – to get help.
