Welcome to the Ames Area Civil Rights Advisory Committee

June is PSTD Awareness Month. AACRAC would like to invite you to watch a 57-minute PBS presentation "PTSD and Military Veterans." Military veterans who experience combat trauma are at a higher risk of suicide than others who experience post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. Across the country, an average of 20 veterans per day take their own lives. That is more than 7,000 per year. Where can veterans get help? How do friends and loved ones recognize the symptoms? The video is sponsored by PBS Hawaii and is in the form of a round-table discussion featuring veterans, relatives, and experts.
