Understanding PTSD For Veterans
Post-traumatic stress disorder, commonly known as PTSD, is a mental health condition that emerges in individuals who have undergone a profoundly distressing experience. This condition affects approximately 7% of the U.S. population and is considered a natural response to traumatic incidents such as sexual abuse, physical assault, violence, or severe accidents.
While around eight million adults grapple with PTSD, a specific demographic bears a significant burden of this disorder. American veterans frequently encounter injuries, death, and other life-threatening situations during wartime and noncombat situations. Regrettably, due to the intensity of these traumas, PTSD can persist throughout a veteran’s lifetime.
