PTSD Awareness Month: Resources

As the only charity in the UK dedicated to raising awareness and supporting those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, we are the home of PTSD Awareness Month in June, and PTSD Awareness Day on June 27th – but we need your support to reach those who need us.

Together, we can make this PTSD Awareness Month a turning point – a time when we come together as a collective force to raise awareness of PTSD and Complex-PTSD. By promoting awareness, sparking conversations, and extending unwavering support, we can create a world where the effects of trauma are met with empathy, understanding, and healing.

Stand with us this June, and let’s bring about positive change for EVERYONE affected by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, no matter the trauma that caused it.

Treatments for PTSD

It is possible for PTSD to be successfully treated many years after the traumatic event occurred, which means it is never too late to seek help. For some, the first step may be watchful waiting, then exploring therapeutic options such as individual or group therapy – but the main treatment options in the UK are psychological treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Traumatic events can be very difficult to come to terms with, but confronting and understanding your feelings and seeking professional help is often the only way of effectively treating PTSD. You can find out more in the links below, or here.
