Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a mental health condition that is triggered by a traumatic event. It is estimated that PTSD affects almost 8% of the population. PTSD can develop after an individual has experienced a traumatic event that has caused them to feel fearful, shocked, or helpless.
As a psychological disorder, symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the traumatic event. PTSD can have long-term effects. Although PTSD typically develops within a month of the traumatic event, symptoms can emerge years later. These symptoms cause significant problems in social or work situations and in relationships. They can also interfere with your ability to go about your normal daily tasks.
