June is PTSD Awareness Month. PTSD is often discussed in the context of veterans and the impact of war. Of course, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) does not only impact vets. PTSD, by definition, can follow any traumatic event. Understanding then must first start with trauma. This blog was created to do just that; specifically, to focus on the traumatic impact of sexual assault, domestic violence, and all forms of childhood abuse.
I am going to take some time this month to get back to basics regarding trauma and its aftermath. I am going to rerun some old posts, share some new material, and highlight resources from others also working to raise awareness of PTSD.
