PTSD can develop after experiencing, witnessing, or learning the details of a traumatic event. Although traumatic experiences are common in the military, it’s important to know that not everybody who goes through trauma develops PTSD.

When you experience trauma, you may experience anger, sadness, trouble sleeping, nightmares, intrusive memories, and flashbacks. If these concerns go on for longer than a month, they may be signs of PTSD. PTSD symptoms usually occur within three months of the traumatic event. They may also begin years later. Additionally, signs and symptoms may not be the same for everyone.

Register to join us on June 29 to learn more about PTSD and Real Warriors Campaign resources for PTSD care and support. A Q&A led by the presenter will follow the presentation.
