June – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Month

Post Traumatic Stress, under various names like, shell shock or combat fatigue has been part of the human experience since the dawn of time. While it is most often associated with military members that have fought in combat, it can manifest from almost any traumatic experience. As an example, victims of violent crimes or being involved in a horrific accident can cause people to have symptoms.

With our automated mail-out refills, medication management options and mobile pharmacist program we try to reach each patient where they are and provide them the medications they need.

True healing from PTSD requires more than medication though, so we partner with organizations like Care Hawaii, that provide case management, counseling, and necessary social work to help our patients. If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, reach out and get help. If you don’t know where to go or how to start, call the National Alliance on Mental Illness Helpline at 800-950-6264.
