Spring 2016 - Bill 206: PTSD Awareness Day

Bill 206: the Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Day Act designates June 27th of each year as  “Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Day.” The purpose of this day is to educate the public about the long-term effects and triggers of PTSD, the importance of accurate and early diagnosis, and to help combat the stigma and silence we often see around mental health issues.
