Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop after a person experiences or witnesses a traumatic event, such as a natural disaster, assault, or military combat. Symptoms of PTSD include flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, depression, and avoidance of triggers related to the traumatic event. 

When is it necessary to see a doctor?

If you experience symptoms such as flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, or avoidance related to a traumatic event, it's time to see a mental health professional for a PTSD evaluation. A doctor or therapist can diagnose PTSD and recommend treatment options such as therapy, medication, or a combination of both to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
