Brookhaven Retreat Recognizes National PTSD Awareness Day on June 27

Wednesday, 24 June 2015 00:00 

Brookhaven Retreat, which offers a unique voluntary residential program of mental health and substance abuse services designed to help women overcome depression, trauma, anxiety, personality disorders, and substance dependence among other diagnoses, will observe June 27 as National Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Day, designated by the National Center for PTSD (NCPTSD).

According to the NCPTSD, PTSD is an anxiety disorder resulting from exposure to one or more traumatic events, such as sexual or physical assault, natural or man-made disaster, and stress sustained by veterans who have experienced combat. Symptoms of the disorder include persistent thoughts and distressing dreams that replay the traumatic event, triggering emotional responses, as well as efforts to avoid thinking or talking about the trauma, and persistent hypervigilance for indications of additional danger or trauma.

“While most people who experience trauma have reactions that go away over a period of time, those with PTSD have feelings that not only continue, but sometimes increase to the point where normal life is interrupted,” says Jacqueline Dawes, founder of Brookhaven Retreat.

PTSD and other mental health and recovery issues are addressed with The Lily Program® , a 90-day individualized mental health treatment program offered exclusively at Brookhaven Retreat.

A new page on the Brookhaven Retreat website addressing PSTD will also be launched to accompany information and descriptions of other mental health issues. The website offers self-help quizzes on issues, including PSTD, to help visitors of the site identify their potential need for recovery help.
