June is PTSD Awareness Month. Wear a teal awareness ribbon to raise awareness of PTSD.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental disorder that can develop after a person is exposed to a traumatic event, such as sexual assault, warfare, traffic collisions, or other threats to a person’s life. Symptoms may include disturbing thoughts, feelings, or dreams related to the events. In addition, there may be mental or physical distress to trauma-related cues, attempts to avoid trauma-related cues and changes in how a person thinks and feels. There may also be increased fight or flight responses. These symptoms last for over a month after the event. Many times, they last for years.
Other Associated Issues
Those with PTSD are at a higher risk of suicide and substance abuse. Most people who experience a traumatic event will have reactions that may include shock, anger, nervousness, fear, and even guilt. These reactions are common. For most people, they go away over time. For a person with PTSD, however, these feelings continue and even increase. They often become so strong that they keep the person from living a normal life. People with PTSD cannot function as well as before the event occurred and it often takes a large toll on their loved-ones.
There are treatments for PTSD, such as talk therapy and medication. Untreated PTSD is very dangerous. If you think that you or a loved one may be suffering from PTSD, see a professional about assessing your situation. Over time, treatment can be very effective in reducing symptoms.
