June 2019 is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month

NOTE: I AM NOT A THERAPIST OR PSYCHIATRIST AND DO NOT PRETEND TO BE ONE.

I want to put the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline in now. This is a huge service and if you need it here it is, I will repeat it again later:

1-800-273-8255

June is PTSD awareness month and know others with PTSD and know how important it is to get the help that is so needed.

Here are some statistics via the United States Department of Veterans Affairs National Center for PTSD:

About 7 or 8 out of every 100 people (or 7-8% of the population) will have PTSD at some point in their lives.

About 8 million adults have PTSD during a given year. This is only a small portion of those who have gone through a trauma.

I want to provide a small list of resources that might help someone. I cannot help everyone but if I touch one person I would have done my job.

Side note: I myself am suffering from mental illnesses and do understand what PTSD is first hand. I feel for those that have it and need the help. Know you are not alone! You are NOT alone!
