Post-traumatic stress disorder awareness month

Post-traumatic stress disorder awareness month

Many of you may associate PTSD with soldiers returning from warfare, however, PTSD is more common than you may think. There are so many ways PTSD can affect a person, and there are ways to help yourself and others through it.

If you are unfamiliar with the signs of PTSD, what you can do to help someone suffering or how to get help, this website can really help you.

And please, if you can spare a donation to http://www.ptsduk.org/donations-page/  See their mission statement below
