National PTSD Awareness Day - June 27

NATIONAL PTSD AWARENESS DAY

National PTSD Awareness Day is observed annually on June 27.  This is a day to recognize the effects post-traumatic stress has on the lives of those affected by it.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has a profound effect on the lives of those who suffer from it.  The statistics alone are staggering, but can only tell a portion of the story. The trauma and anxiety associated with PTSD is a constant burden, inseparable from the sufferer. It was once a condition that was attributed only to returning combat veterans, but more and more the condition is diagnosed in those who have experienced violent crime or lived through catastrophic events.  According to PTSD United, 20% of adults in the United States who have experienced a traumatic event suffer from PTSD.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Reach out to someone you know who suffers from PTSD.  Let them know you care and are there to help. Learn more about PTSD at NIMH. Use #NationalPTSDAwarenessDay to share on social media.

HISTORY

The United States Senate established PTSD Awareness Day in 2010 following then-Sen. Kent Conrad’s efforts to designate a day of awareness as a tribute to Army Staff Sgt. Joe Biel of the North Dakota National Guard, Davison said. Biel suffered from PTSD and took his life in April 2007 after returning to North Dakota following his second tour of duty in the Iraq War.

Biel’s birthday, June 27, was chosen to mark PTSD Awareness Day and honor his memory.
