June Is PTSD Awareness Month PDF Print E-mail
June is PTSD awareness month, and we thought we'd share a quick PTSD self-screen from the VA to help you if you think you may have some PTSD symptoms.

Remember, the only way to know for sure if you have PTSD is to talk to a mental health care provider, a simple internet test isn't the same thing as talking to somebody who knows what they are doing.
 
This is only one of many tools designed to increase awareness of PTSD and let people find the assistance they may need.

TAKE A SELF-SCREEN FOR PTSD
A screen is a brief set of questions to tell you if it is likely you might have PTSD. Below is the Primary Care PTSD Checklist for DSM-5, or the PC-PTSD-5 screen.
 
Military Will House Immigrant Children If Asked PDF Print E-mail
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis weighed in on the controversial decision to separate immigrant children from their parents, saying the military would provide housing at bases if asked.

In recent weeks, Congress and President Donald Trump have faced a groundswell of criticism for the administration’s decision to separate immigrant children from parents along the southern U.S. border with Mexico who have crossed into the country illegally. Images and sound recordings of traumatized children, some as young as 2 years old, have become a lightning rod for the divisive issue. Trump signed an executive order Wednesday to end the practice. 

The order, according to a White House email sent to reporters Wednesday, calls for Mattis to “take all legally available measures to provide to the [DHS Secretary,] upon request, any existing facilities available for the housing and care of alien families, and shall construct such facilities if necessary and consistent with law. The Secretary, to the extent permitted by law, shall be responsible for reimbursement for the use of these facilities.”
