“Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month is acknowledged annually in June to focus on raising awareness about PTSD, which is a mental disorder that may develop after exposure to traumatic events. According to the National Center for PTSD, approximately  7 or 8 out of every 100 individuals  will experience PTSD at some point in their lives and some individuals may be more susceptible than others. Women are more likely to develop PTSD than men, and genetics may also play a factor.”
