PTSD Awareness Month
Posted by Jason Hansman on June 28
As PTSD Awareness Month comes to a close, it's imperative to continue to look out for ourselves and each other because nobody should ever suffer from an invisible injury in isolation. If you feel that you, or somebody you know, is struggling with readjustment, please know that you are never alone. We at IAVA have your back and want to make sure you have every resource you may need at your disposal. Get the facts, and if necessary, the support you need. PTSD Awareness Month may end this week, but we must remain cognizant of PTSD awareness everyday. Below are some organizations we trust.
- IAVA's Community of Veterans offers peer to peer support in an exclusive online community.
