PTSD Awareness Month

June has been dedicated to it. The sign at the Veteran’s Hospital in Erie, Pennsylvania, has been announcing it. Post-traumatic stress disorder affects many, and military personnel are at a high risk. View the video series at the VA website. @PBSNeedToKnow recently tweeted:

Did you know? According to a recent #Pentagon report, there were 154 suicides among active-duty troops in the first 155 days of this year.

PTSD may well have been involved in many of those cases.
