Post-Traumatic Stress Screening Highlights Mental Health Needs of Veterans and First Responders

June 24, 2024

06/26/2024----TOMS RIVER, NJ----PTSD Awareness Month is a reminder to raise awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder – no matter what kind of trauma caused it. For Veterans and those who have experienced or witnessed life-threatening events, awareness and screening are imperative.

As part of PTSD Awareness Month, June 27th is known as PTSD Awareness Day as well as PTSD Screening Day. This post highlights the importance of screening and treatment for PTSD, and the resources available at The Counseling Center (TCC).

Veterans and First Responders: You're Not Alone. Get Help For PTSD.

Precise screening for mental health disorders like PTSD provides a beacon of hope for millions of individuals and families affected by mental health challenges arising from involvement in traumatic events. Screening is critical and Thursday June 27th marks National PTSD Screening Day at TCC.

Your Mental Health Matters

Trauma can affect anyone, Veterans and nonveterans alike. Additionally, trauma seen or heard and not experienced first-hand can result in PTSD symptoms. However, not all trauma results in PTSD.

Why Veterans and First Responders are at Risk

Veterans and first responders face a higher risk of developing PTSD due to the nature of their work. Witnessing or experiencing traumatic events can take a toll on mental health. However, effective PTSD treatment is available, and TCC is here to help.

Praesum Healthcare and TCC join other accredited PTSD treatment centers in June 2024 to take the pledge to raise awareness about PTSD and effective PTSD treatment options:


Understanding PTSD

June is PTSD Awareness Month, a time to shed light on a condition that affects millions of Americans, especially veterans and first responders.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event. Symptoms like flashbacks, nightmares, and anxiety can significantly impact daily life. While trauma is the root cause, screening is crucial for proper diagnosis and treatment.
