June is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Month (PTSD)

In Canada, it is estimated that up to 2.3% of the population is dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) at any moment. Along with struggling with symptoms of PTSD, people may also feel the weight of stigma from their co-workers, organizations, or the public. This stigma can stop those who are suffering from seeking help or asking for support. Understanding the reality of symptoms and debunking myths about PTSD can help improve the lives of people who are struggling.
