Rep. Napolitano Recognizes National Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano recognized the importance of National Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Day, a day dedicated to promote public understanding of PTS and other issues faced by many returning servicemembers.

"The mental wounds of war are as serious if not more serious than the physical ones," Napolitano said. "Our country needs to provide the services our veterans have earned and let them know it is critical that they begin the process of seeking help. Congress must continue to fully fund federal programs helping veterans with PTS, and we must continue to support and welcome our veterans and their families in our local communities."

PTSD Awareness Day was first established by Congress in 2010 after Sen. Kent Conrad, (D-N.D.), proposed honoring North Dakota Army National Guard Staff Sgt. Joe Biel, who took his own life following two tours in Iraq. Biel's birthday was June 27.
