Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

PTSD is a mental health condition that affects millions of individuals worldwide. While it is often closely associated with combat veterans and other members of the military; the fact is, PTSD can affect anyone exposed to a traumatic event. Most people will have stress-related reactions following a traumatic event, but not everyone will develop PTSD. Symptoms of PTSD generally last four weeks or more, and these symptoms can make it hard for people to function in their daily lives as they had prior to the event.
