What is PTSD? In honor of our veterans and those who are currently serving, Monkey Challenges is focusing on the meaning of PTSD as the 4th of July is around the corner.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is an anxiety disorder that develops from a terrifying event, such as war or abuse expose from harm. PTSD characterizes by flashbacks and recurring nightmares from the traumatic event. These trigger from loud noises or violent interactions.
Treatments include therapy, medication, and surprisingly gaming. Another charity in partnership with Monkey Challenges, is Anxiety Gaming, focusing on the benefits of gaming among mental health disorders.
The Semper Fi Fund, is a non-profit charity providing financial assistance and lifetime support to wounded, ill and injured members of the Armed Forces and their families, who also does their fair share to assist soldiers.
