PTSD - it's personal.

June is PTSD Awareness month.

This is very personal to me.  I'm a military spouse, Blue Star mom x4, and Blue Star grandmother, with other loved ones serving our communities as first responders. My family, my friends - no one is untouched. 

Somethings cannot be unseen, unheard, unfelt. PTSD is not something we can see, like a broken leg or bruise, but it's as much a part of that person as bones and skin.

The people that need help often do not LOOK like they need help.

Here are a few emergency resources:

  • In US & Canada Call 911. PTSD Helpline (888) 457-4838.
  • National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255 or text HOME to 741741 to the Crisis Test Line.
  • Young people call Kids Help 1-800-668-6868.
  • If you are in the UK, call the Samaritans on 116123
