PTSD Screening Day
June 27th marks a significant day: PTSD Screening Day. This day serves as a reminder of the importance of mental health awareness and the need to screen for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In this blog post, we will explore the significance of PTSD screening and highlight how our The Help Group’s Lumina Counseling offers comprehensive support to individuals struggling with PTSD and other challenges.
- A mental health disorder that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event
- Affects individuals from all walks of life, including survivors of abuse, military personnel, first responders, and those who have been through accidents or natural disasters

Why is PTSD Screening Important?
- Early Detection: By identifying symptoms and providing prompt intervention, individuals can receive the necessary support and treatment to alleviate their suffering
