June is PTSD Awareness Month
1. Having PTSD does not mean you’re “crazy.”
2. PTSD does not cause someone to be violent.
3. If you have PTSD, you are not alone. With treatment, you can get better.
4. In the general population, women are twice as likely as men to experience PTSD at some point in their lifetime.
5. Many people with PTSD also experience chronic pain or other physical health symptoms.
