June is PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) Month

PTSD stands for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder:  It is a mental health disorder that some people develop after they experience or see a traumatic or disturbing event. The traumatic event may be life-threatening, such as combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault. Sometimes the event is not a dangerous one.
