Beginning in 2010, Congress termed June 27th Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Day (S. Res. 455). Since that time, June has been designated as a time to raise public awareness about PTSD, as well as available treatments of the disorder. According to The National Center for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, after the occurrence of a traumatic event, it is common for people to experience stress reactions. If stress reactions related to a traumatic event do not begin to improve over time, one should consider seeking help to determine if PTSD is a factor. Some of the symptoms that The National Center for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder attributes to PTSD include: reliving the traumatic event through nightmares or flashbacks, avoiding situations that may be a reminder of the traumatic event, negative changes in believes/feelings, or feeling keyed up (jittery or always on the look out for danger). If you have experienced a traumatic event and feel that you may be having symptoms related to PTSD, or you are interested in more information on the issue, please phone Perry County Counseling Center at 618-542-4357.
