About PTSD

Most people will experience a life-threatening traumatic event in their lifetime, including but not limited to:

  • Physical or sexual assault (with or without a weapon)
  • Domestic abuse
  • A serious accident (in the workplace, in a vehicle, in public, etc.)
  • Natural disaster
  • Military/first responder traumatic events

Events such as these can trigger a range of symptoms, including.

  • Flashbacks, nightmares, or trouble sleeping
  • Avoiding things that bring on distressing memories
  • Negative thoughts or feelings, feeling detached
  • Feeling on edge or easily startled
  • Feeling that normal day to day activities, relationships, and overall state of mind has changed drastically since the traumatic event

While these symptoms often go away in a few weeks, for some they never go away and linger for months or even years – a condition known as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
