June is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month

We want to encourage everyone to help raise public awareness of PTSD and learn more about effective treatments. We can all help those affected by PTSD.

What Is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.

Approximately 50 percent of the population will experience a traumatic event at some point in their lives. While reactions to trauma can vary widely, and not everyone will develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), trauma can change the brain in some predictable ways that everyone should be aware of, especially if you or someone close to you is struggling to cope after trauma. With increased awareness, you can seek treatment to address your symptoms and learn skills that could actually rewire your brain for recovery.

Ohio is making it easier for individuals who are experiencing a stressful situation to find immediate help, 24/7 with the launch of a free, confidential, statewide Crisis Text Line. Any Ohio resident who needs help coping with a crisis can now text the keyword “4hope” to 741741 to be connected to a crisis counselor. Specialists are on stand-by to provide a personal response and information on a range of issues, including: suicidal thoughts, bullying, depression, self-harm, and more. The specialist helps the user stay safe and healthy with effective, secure support. The crisis text line is funded by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities.


The Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board is accepting applications for two Board member openings.  More information about the Board and an application may be found at the Board of Directors Link.

Providing hope and help...

All of us know someone whose life has been touched by a mental health concern or substance abuse. In fact, one out of four Americans will experience a mental health concern during his or her lifetime. Mental illnesses are biologically based brain disorders. They cannot be overcome through willpower and are not related to a person's character or intelligence. They are medical conditions that disrupt a person's thinking, feeling, mood, daily functioning and ability to relate to others.

Addiction involves craving for something intensely, loss of control over its use, and continuing involvement with it despite adverse consequences. Addiction changes the brain, first by subverting the way it registers pleasure and then by corrupting other normal drives such as learning and motivation. Although breaking an addiction is tough, it can be done.  Nearly 23 million Americans—almost one in 10—are addicted to alcohol or other drugs.

Fortunately, there is hope and help for people, thanks to the Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board and its partner agencies.  The Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board plans, funds, monitors, and evaluates mental health and substance abuse services in Trumbull County, Ohio.  For 48 years we have ensured that a safety net of services is available for all our residents.
