To educate the local community about issues related to Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Syracuse University’s Falk College, is offering a discussion series during the month of June, which is designated as National PTSD Awareness Month. PTSD is a psychiatric disorder that can occur following the experience or witnessing of life-threatening events, such as military combat, natural disasters, terrorist incidents, serious accidents, or physical or sexual assault.
The discussion series to raise public awareness of PTSD and its effective treatments is free and open to the public. It takes place in conjunction with the Trauma Research Education for Undergraduates program, a joint effort by Syracuse University, SUNY Upstate Medical University and SUNY Oswego to improve access to research experiences for groups typically underrepresented in research.
Join us Wednesday, June 12 at 1:30 in Falk College Room 335 for a talk with Roland Van Deusen, MSW ’67, G’75, a U.S. Navy veteran and retired psychiatric social worker and drug counselor. The talk is titled “Searching for Ways to Reduce Veteran Suicide”
