PTSD Awareness Month

June 27 is National Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Day. The MHS is taking the opportunity to raise awareness in the military community about PTSD symptoms and effects, as well as advance the discussion about diagnosis, treatment, and care for those suffering from the effects of trauma, and inspire them to seek effective treatment.
