What is PTSD?
Post-traumatic stress disorder, also known as PTSD, is a mental health condition that is triggered after you have witnessed or experienced a traumatic event. The symptoms of PTSD can include severe anxiety, flashbacks, nightmares, and recurring thoughts about the event. If not treated, these symptoms can often last for months or years and can drastically interrupt your daily routine.
For those who experience PTSD, receiving proper treatment and self-care is critical for improving quality of life and reducing symptoms.
Causes of PTSD
The causes of PTSD will vary, but any individual who has experienced a traumatic event can develop the condition. In some cases, symptoms of PTSD may not even appear until years after the event that triggered the condition. Some specific causes of PTSD can include:
- Experiencing or witnessing stressful events
- The recurrence of intrusive memories
- A family history of anxiety or depression
- Your response to stress
- Brain chemistry
