June is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month and the US Department of Veterans Affairs is helping to raise awareness of the condition. About 60% of men and 50% of women will go through at least one traumatic event in their life, and 5.2 million adults will experience PTSD during any given year.
Here are just a few useful tools to check out…

- 10 Steps to Help, with knowledge and links to help you or others you might know who are living with PTSD
- Clinical trail tool to find studies you might be eligible for right in your neighborhood
