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:
June is PTSD awareness month and know others with PTSD and know how important it is to get the help that is so needed.
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!
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
