What is PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like war, sexual assault, or a natural disaster. Symptoms of PTSD can include flashbacks, nightmares, avoidance of reminders of the event, and feelings of detachment or numbness.

How is PTSD diagnosed?

A mental health professional can diagnose PTSD based on your symptoms and your history. There is no single test for PTSD.

How is PTSD treated?

There are a few different treatments for PTSD, including psychotherapy, medication, and complementary therapies. Psychotherapy can help you to understand your symptoms and develop coping mechanisms. Medication can help to reduce the severity of your symptoms. Complementary therapies, such as yoga or mindfulness, can also be helpful.

If you think you may have PTSD, it is important to seek professional help. There is no shame in having PTSD, and there are effective treatments available.
