As we approach the one-year anniversary of the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey, we may be sensing an increased remembrance of that disaster. Our bodies and minds may be feeling jitteriness or panic, worry, over-concern, or fearfulness. We may be having flashbacks and nightmares of the events. These are common reactions which mental health professionals refer to as symptoms of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD.
 
Each age group: children, adolescents, young adults, middle age adults, and seniors all share some common reactions, as well as reactions unique to each age group. Being mindful of our commitment toward holistic living we are presenting a panel group of area experts to explain how PTSD can be recognized and addressed within our community and to provide some practical ways we can help people we know. PTSD can affect people of all age groups. Our intention is not to replace therapists, counselors, and physicians, but to provide an educational outlet so people can gain knowledge and learn about positive actions to take.
 
We have assembled an outstanding group of professionals that includes: Kathy Gray focusing on children, Katie Porter addressing teenagers, Ty Lerman speaking about young adults, Lynne Benton discussing middle age adults, and Dr. Marty Lerman talking about elderly adults. In addition to sharing information, there will be lengthy question and answer period to address your concerns.
