June signifies Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month. According to the National Center for PTSD, about 6 out of every 100 people (or 6% of the population) will have PTSD at some point in their lives. In addition, when individuals serve in the military, they may be exposed to different types of traumas than civilians. The war they served also may affect their risk because of the types of trauma that are common. War zone deployment, training accidents and military sexual trauma (or, MST) may lead to PTSD. It's important to STEP up to raise awareness for PTSD by getting moving! Registration is requiredhttps://forms.office.com/r/t0Gs5Xwvbe
