The PDB Show: Ep 144 Mental Health Monday: Understanding PTSD. All across the news and social media, you are hearing about how this month, June, is LGBT Pride month. What you may not know, because it’s not chic enough, popular enough, or even woke enough is this same month is also National Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Month. Even though PTSD treatments work, most people who have PTSD don’t get the help they need. In this episode, we are going to discuss PTSD as a means to help all sufferers; first responders, military veterans, and normal people with normal jobs to navigate the highly stigmatized mental health diagnosis of PTSD. What is it? Why does it affect my life the way it does? Lastly, how can I navigate out of the darkness of PTSD to being able to manage my symptoms and bring a ray of light into my life? We will cover this, and more, tonight on the Phillip D. Blackmon Show.
