Staff Perspective: PTSD Awareness Month Wrap-Up

As we close out this year's PTSD Awareness Month, we wanted to take a quick look at some of the many resources that the CDP and other organizations have compiled to help further the effort. We've come a long way with regards to increasing awareness of PTSD and accompanying treatment options, but there is always more to be done!
