On Thursday, June 27 from 2:00-4:00pm River Hospital’s River Community Wellness Program (RCWP) will host a PTSD Awareness Day Open House on the Hospital’s Alexandria Bay, NY campus.
June is PTSD Awareness Month and River Hospital’s River Community Wellness Program (RCWP) encourages everyone to learn more about recognizing and treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. June 27 was designated as PTSD Awareness Day by Congress in 2010. Much of what is done to observe PTSD Awareness Day involves encouraging open talk about PTSD, its’ causes, symptoms, and most important of all, getting help for the condition. PTSD is, even in modern times, often misunderstood by those with no firsthand experience with the condition or those who suffer from it. PTSD Awareness Day is designed to help change that.
“Our goal is to raise awareness about PTSD and ways to cope after experiencing a traumatic event. While most people think of Soldiers or Veterans when they hear PTSD, the fact is that members who live and work in our community also experience trauma. Exposure to traumatic incidents for those who serve, protect and defend our communities can have serious consequences affecting both the individual and their families.” said RCWP Director, Brad Frey, RPA-C.
“Anyone who suffers a traumatic event is at risk of PTSD. River Community Wellness Program is committed to helping people better understand PTSD and find the treatment that works best for them.”
All are welcome to attend the open house. Light refreshments and information on PTSD will be available. For more information call the River Community Wellness Program at 315.482.1277.
