About PTSD Awareness Month

Night terrors, flashbacks, evenings spent in isolation. These are just some of the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). More than eight million Americans live with some of these symptoms – the reaction to a personally traumatic experience. It is estimated at least 600,000 post-9/11 veterans are part of that population living with PTSD.

Join us in observing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Month in June. The goal of PTSD Awareness Month is to spread awareness about PTSD symptoms and effects, as well as advance the discussion about diagnosis, treatment, and care for those suffering from the effects of trauma.

PTSD:

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a diagnosed condition that can develop after a person is exposed to a traumatic event. PTSD is a very common condition for many veterans after military service. Symptoms can include disturbing thoughts, feelings, or dreams related to the events, mental or physical distress, difficulty sleeping, and changes in how a person thinks and feels.

 

WWP directs every hour, dollar, and action to helping warriors achieve their highest ambition. Some of its programs focus directly on treating PTSD and creating coping skills for wounded veterans of today’s generation. Individuals respond differently to trauma. They also respond differently to treatment. Here are a few of our mental health programs:
