June is PTSD Awareness Month

 

The American Psychiatric Association notes four categories of PTSD symptoms: Intrusion (involving intrusive thoughts), Avoidance (avoiding reminders of the event such as people, places, objects & activities), Alterations in cognition and mood, and Alterations in arousal and reactivity.

It’s important, but hard, to remember that you are not alone, and that mental health is just as important as physical health. Make an appointment with a mental health professional near you today. Check out our Behavioral Health services at https://alliancech.org/services/behavioral-health/.
