What is PTSD?
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a mental health condition that is triggered by exposure to a terrifying event. Most often associated with combat during warfare, PTSD can also be developed by those experiencing sexual assault and abuse, domestic violence, neglect, and emotional and physical abuse. Symptoms can include uncontrollable thoughts, numbness, dissociation, severe anxiety, flashbacks, and nightmares. If you think you have PTSD, it’s important to get help from licensed professionals
