Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. Traumatic events can include things like combat exposure, sexual or physical assault, natural disasters, serious accidents, or other life-threatening events.

Individuals suffering from PTSD may experience symptoms such as intrusive thoughts or memories related to the traumatic event, nightmares, flashbacks, avoidance of triggers associated with the trauma, negative changes in mood or thinking, and heightened feelings of anxiety or hyperarousal. These symptoms can greatly impact a person’s daily life, including their ability to work, socialize, and carry out daily tasks.
