Avon - PTSD/TBI and communities
Posted on: 2019-10-08
What: PTSD/TBI and communities
Where: Avon Library, 281 Country Club Rd., Avon, CT 06001
When: October 28, 2019, 6:30 pm
Learn about these two important mental health challenges and see why there is often a misdiagnosis of one or both of these disorders, especially since they share many of the same symptoms. Justine Ginsberg, R.N., covers:
Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): it's not just for veterans

PTSD can happen to anyone who is exposed to abnormally high levels of stress or life threatening/changing events. Car accidents, sexual assault, domestic abuse, natural disasters and high risk environments can all trigger PTSD in an individual. Rather than a disorder, PTS is the most normal reaction to abnormal circumstances. Learn why it is more common today, and about the success in providing coping skills for those who suffer from it.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI):

An injury to the head that causes a disruption to normal brain function. A bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury can cause mild or sever TBI. The physical and cognitive effects of TBI can go undiagnosed for years and can cause major disruption to an individuals ability to live their life.
These events are co-sponsored by the Avon Library and Avon Senior Center, as part of their "Take Care of Yourself" mental health programming grant from NNLM.
