Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
What is PTSD?
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that people sometimes develop in response to a traumatic event. Approximately 7.7 million adults live with PTSD in the United States alone. Anyone who experiences past trauma, of any kind, can be at risk.
What are common symptoms?
• Psychological distress when exposed to cues that relate to the event.
• Significant physical responses to cues that relate to the event.
• Dissociative reactions or flashbacks in which the person relives the event.
• Repeated dreams about the trauma.
• Persistent and involuntary dreadful memories of the event.
• Avoidance of external factors (such as locations, conversations, people or activities) that remind the person of the traumatic event and cause terrifying thoughts, feelings or memories.
• Avoidance of painful memories, thoughts or feelings associated with the trauma.
• Irritability and anger, typically expressed as aggression.
• Self-destructive behaviors.
• Hypervigilance or hyperarousal (increased anxiety and detection of threats).
• Exaggerated response to being startled.
• Concentration difficulties.
• Sleep problems
