Each year, on June 27, we observe National HIV Testing Day (NHTD). On this day, we unite with partners, health departments, and other organizations to raise awareness about the importance of HIV testing and early diagnosis of HIV. Today, it is estimated that one in seven people with HIV don’t know they have HIV. In a time in which effective HIV treatments are widely available, the imperative for HIV testing has never been greater and the wide availability of HIV testing options assures that knowing your HIV status has never been easier. #NMCPHC #NavyMedicine #HIVTestingDay

Today we recognize National Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Day. PTSD is a mental health disorder that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threating event. According to the PTSD Foundation of America, an estimated 7.8 percent of Americans will experience PTSD at some point in their lives, while about 30 percent of service members who have spent time in war zones experience PTSD. Typically, only 50 percent of PTSD sufferers seek treatment. #NMCPHC #NavyMedicine #ptsdawareness

Men, women, and children can experience PTSD as a result of trauma in their lives. Events due to combat, accidents, disasters, and abuse are just a few of the causes of PSTD. No matter the reason, PTSD is treatable, but not everyone seeks treatment. There are resources available to help diagnosis PTSD and get help. There is no shame in seeking assistance. #NMCPHC #NavyMedicine #PTSDAwarenessMonth

Help spread the word that today is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. It can be hard to imagine that anyone would deliberately want to harm an elderly person, but unfortunately, elder abuse is a widespread problem. Some instances of elder abuse are intended to exploit the person financially; you’ve probably heard of scams targeting seniors. In other cases, it’s simple negligence: Caregivers don’t provide the basic necessities, like nutritious food, appropriate medication, safety, or assistance with hygiene. If you see something, say something. #NMCPHC #NavyMedicine #WEAAD2021
