What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?
The National Institute of Mental Health determines that PTSD is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. The NMH indicates that nearly everyone will experience a range of reactions after trauma, yet most people recover from initial symptoms naturally. Those who continue to experience problems may be diagnosed with PTSD. People who have PTSD may feel stressed or frightened even when they are not in danger.
