Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Did you know that almost half of all Americans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are receiving minimally adequate treatment?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) develops after a terrifying ordeal that involved physical harm or the threat of physical harm. The person who develops PTSD may have been the one who was harmed, the harm may have happened to a loved one, or the person may have witnessed a harmful event that happened to loved ones or strangers.
