|A little about me:||I live in Colorado. Was diagnosed with Agoraphobia in 2005. Still fighting it. Can't seem to find a doctor who will help or can help. My "therapist" told me after seeing her for a year that I need to see a specialist who deals with anxiety/agoraphobia....this was just a few weeks ago. I'm looking and haven't had any luck.|
|June is national PTSD awareness month!
10 Steps to Raise PTSD Awareness

You can help a family member or friends with PTSD. There is support for friends and family too.
*Know the facts: More than half of US adults will experience at least one trauma in their lifetime. How common is PTSD?. For Veterans and people who have been through violence and abuse, the number is higher.
*Expand your understanding: Learn about assessment and how to find out if someone has PTSD. Complete a brief checklist or take an online screen to see if a professional evaluation is needed. June 20th is National PTSD Screening Day.
