Help is Available – June is PTSD Awareness Month

Serviceperson looking out a window with the words "Not all wounds are visible. June is PTSD Awareness Month".

Nationwide, approximately 8 million Americans suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This mental health condition can be triggered by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event or experience, and PTSD impacts thousands of veterans of all generations. In recognition of this condition, June has been named PTSD Awareness Month.

Celebrating Military Children in April

April is the Month of the Military Child. With all the support that veterans receive, it is easy to sometimes overlook the sacrifices made by veteran family members. This month was established and is sponsored by the Departed of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA). Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger created the Month of the Military Child in 1986, and the DoDEA has honored it ever since. During the Month of the Military Child, we highlight how important the family and children are for our service men and women.
