June: PTSD Awareness Month



June is PTSD Awareness Month:

The military does provide resources for immediate family when it comes to deployments, but there are many more people in the lives of a service member than just immediate family.

Many times extended family, friends, acquaintances, co-workers, neighbors, and others are part of the daily existence of a returning service member, but they may not be aware of the major impact a return home has on a service member. We often think the service member must be so relieved to be home, so grateful to not be in a war zone any longer that they should be jumping for joy to be back on our soil. Don't get me wrong, they are glad to be home, but being home doesn't mean being secure or feeling secure. This is why it is called a transition. It is a process that they must go through to reintegrate.  

Please check out the post-deployment family guide document below from the National Center for PTSD to help you better understand the process a service member and their family must go through upon returning home.
