PTSD Awareness Day
June 27, 2024
PTSD Awareness Day, also known as Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Day, is a day dedicated to raising awareness about the condition and its impact on individuals, families, and communities. PTSD is a mental health condition that can develop after a traumatic event and can affect anyone, including military service members, first responders, and civilians. The day is observed on June 27 each year, and its purpose is to encourage people to learn about the symptoms of PTSD, seek help if they need it, and support those who are living with the condition. It also aims to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and promote understanding and compassion for those affected by PTSD.
