Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

PTSD is an anxiety disorder that may develop following exposure to any one of a variety of traumatic events that may involve actual or threatened death, or serious injury or something else for that matter.

The event may be witnessed rather than directly experienced, and even learning about it may be sufficient if the persons involved are family members or close friends.

Sufferers may experience flashbacks, panic attacks and heightened awareness. The symptoms of PTSD can be particularly severe and have a profound impact upon the sufferer’s quality of life.
