Today is National PTSD Awareness Day, a day dedicated to shedding light on post-traumatic stress disorder, which disproportionately affects our Veterans and service members at a higher rate than civilians. PTSD is 3 times more likely to occur in service members who have deployed, than those who have not. Regardless of the circumstances, those battling post-traumatic stress disorder should know they are not alone, and there are many resources out there to help them get the treatment they need.
