Post-traumatic Growth 

June is PTSD awareness month. Traumatic experiences are inevitable for first-responders, but that doesn't mean you or your officer need to feel 'stuck' with a psychological injury like PTSD. 

In early June, our social media campaign focused on growing through trauma, and introduced Post-traumatic Growth (PTG). 

We've put together some helpful links so you can learn more about PTG, and see if it's something you (or someone you care about) might benefit from. 

Always talk to mental wellness professionals to find the best treatment avenue for you, because no two journeys are the same. 

Please reach out if you'd like any guidance.
