Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: Helpful Links

PTSD is a whole-body tragedy, an integral human event of enormous proportions with massive repercussions.
~ Susan Pease Banitt

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month.  Join me in blogging to erase the stigma of mental illness so our loved ones can seek the help they need.

emorial Day is not about picnics and three day weekends.

It’s about remembering the men and women who fight to keep our freedoms safe.

Whatever you feel or think about current military conflicts, I hope we never see another time in history where we spit or shun anyone who has fought in a war we didn’t agree with.

What we did to our boys when they came back from ‘Nam was shameful.  They were already suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the horrors of seeing their buddies die beside them.  They needed more support, not less.

Understanding PTSD
So in honor of their sacrifice, I’ve compiled a list of sites that help define PTSD and offers support for both those who suffer from it and those who love them.

And remember, not everyone who suffers from PTSD has suffered a trauma in war, but they have suffered a trauma nonetheless.

I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I
never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough
for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made
good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
