Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a serious mental health condition that can develop after a person has experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. This can include events such as natural disasters, serious accidents, terrorist acts, war/combat, rape, or other violent personal assaults. Those living with PTSD may have intense, disturbing thoughts and feelings related to their experience that last long after the traumatic event has ended. They may relive the event through flashbacks or nightmares, experience sadness, fear or anger, and feel detached or estranged from other people.
Recognizing the signs and symptoms of PTSD is crucial, as early intervention can significantly improve the prognosis. A variety of organizations and companies are devoted to assisting those affected by PTSD with specialized treatment programs, support groups, research initiatives, and educational resources aimed at both sufferers and their loved ones.
