Tuesday was national Post Traumatic Stress Disorder awareness day. According to the U.S. department of Veterans affairs, every year, nearly 8 million adults experience PTSD.
PTSD awareness day, aims to promote understanding, and teach people the signs. “In young children crying, temper tantrums, clingy-ness if you will. In adults, isolation, changes in habits, nightmares,” Kimberley Lee of the Center for Human Development told 22News.
