When people think of reasons a person would wear medical ID jewelry, they typically list things like diabetes, food allergies, drug allergies, epilepsy, heart conditions, and Alzheimer's. And while all of these conditions are important reasons to wear medical alert jewelry, there is one group of conditions that is largely overlooked: mental health disorders.
PTSD is a term we hear used in the media a lot these days. As the public’s understanding about and compassion toward mental health conditions improves, and as we as a nation have dealt with numerous natural and manmade disasters, particularly in the last decade, the national conversation about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has become an ongoing dialog. It’s important to understand some basics about PTSD so we can understand the issues at hand, provide appropriate support to those living with this disorder, and dispel myths that prevent people from getting the help they need and deserve.
