Usually caused by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a mental health condition where anxiety may be present. When someone suffers from PTSD, they may experience intense feelings of fear and helplessness.
If we go through a traumatic event, like a car accident for example, it’s common to have feelings of fear, guilt, sadness and sometimes grief. These feelings will usually be present in the weeks immediately after the event and will reduce over time.
However, sometimes these feelings remain present for longer, or the person becomes distressed in situations that remind them of the traumatic event. And these instances it is like that they have developed PTSD.
PTSD can affect people of all ages, and while it can be challenging to manage, it is possible to manage this condition with help and support.
