Memory cafés meet at a variety of places, including coffeehouses, museums, or community organizations. Each memory café is different. Some cafés invite guest artists, some offer education about memory changes. And some are just for relaxing and chatting. But, all cafés share one goal — to help guests feel comfortable and to know that they are not alone. Cafés are a place to talk with others who understand what you are going through. You can forget about your limitations and instead focus on your strengths.

CODMAN SQUARE BRANCH OF THE BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY

690 Washington Street, Dorchester

Meets the second Wednesday of every month, from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Mental Health and PTSD Event

We are hosting a Mental Health and PTSD event on Thursday, June 24, 2024.

The locations and time is TBD.

Please check our website for details and updates on this event.

June 24, 2024
2024-06-24T08:00:00 - 2024-06-24T15:00:00

PTSD can be caused by several factors. It is most notably caused by being thrust into a combat situation that adds an overwhelming amount of stress to an already stressful situation, which may include actions during war, politics around the world, location of combat, and the type of enemy faced. Moreover, in addition to being in a highly stressful environment, a large number of veterans have reportedly experienced sexual assault as well as sexual harassment when in active duty.

Historically, PTSD has been recorded from as far back as 50BC by a war soldier who was haunted by PTSD-like flashbacks and these symptoms have since been consistently mentioned with different labels because of its unfamiliarity.

In 1980, PTSD was officially acknowledged in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM). National PTSD Awareness Day was recognized on June 27th in 2010 in honor of a North Dakota National Guard member who had committed suicide after two tours of duty in Iraq, and in 2014, the month of June was recognized as PTSD Awareness Month.
