Join TRICARE, Real Warriors Campaign for June 29 Webinar on PTSD
June is PTSD Awareness Month. Join TRICARE on Friday, June 29, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET for the “PTSD Care and Support: Real Warriors Campaign Resources” webinar. This webinar will discuss posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) signs, symptoms, and treatment options, as well as how to overcome barriers to seeking care.
PTSD can develop after experiencing, witnessing, or learning the details of a traumatic event. Although traumatic experiences are common in the military, it’s important to know that not everybody who goes through trauma develops PTSD.
When you experience trauma, you may experience anger, sadness, trouble sleeping, nightmares, intrusive memories, and flashbacks. If these concerns go on for longer than a month, they may be signs of PTSD. PTSD symptoms usually occur within three months of the traumatic event. They may also begin years later. Additionally, signs and symptoms may not be the same for everyone.
