PTSD Awareness Month is an opportunity for raising awareness and to educate the public about the risks of PTSD and the resources available to those who have experienced trauma. Every June is PTSD Awareness Month and includes events, observances, and other activities that raise awareness about post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and educate people about how to prevent it. PTSD Awareness Month also provides information on where to find professional help and effective treatments for those experiencing PTSD.


Help to Raise PTSD Awareness

Most people with PTSD do not get the help they need. Even though PTSD treatments work, physical abuse, physical assault and sexual assault are often underreported. PTSD Awareness month is every June, and Turning Point of Tampa is helping to spread the word that effective PTSD treatments are available.

Approximately 8 Million People in the United States Have PTSD.

Throughout the world, sexual assault, serious accidents and natural disasters, effect Veterans or civilian survivors. Together we can participate in PTSD awareness month and recognize PTSD treatments really work and can lead to a better quality of living.
