LGBTQIA PRIDE MONTH

Throughout June, Pride Month commemorates the Stonewall riots in Manhattan in 1969 and rallies support for the LGBTQIA community.

Communities across the country hold parades, workshops, celebrations, and concerts. Marches for civil rights and awareness take place.

The month is a time for remembering those who paved the way for the LGBTQA community and who continue to do so. It’s a time for education and breaking down barriers, too. Look back at the changes and see what more work still needs to be done.

 

 National PTSD Awareness Month

NATIONAL PTSD AWARENESS MONTH

National PTSD Awareness Month is observed annually in June. The month is dedicated to raising awareness about the condition and how to access treatment. June 27th is also National PTSD Awareness Day

According to the National Center for PTSD, between 7 and 8 percent of the population will experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during their lifetime.

Men, women, and children can experience PTSD as a result of trauma in their lives. Events due to combat, accidents, disasters, and abuse are just a few of the causes of PSTD. No matter the reason, PTSD is treatable, but not everyone seeks treatment. There are resources available to help diagnosis PTSD and get help. There is no shame in seeking assistance.
