What is PTSD?
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that occurs when someone reacts negatively to acute or chronic trauma. Trauma is any experience that threatens an individual’s emotional or physical well-being, or other severe emotional stress such as divorce or unemployment. Some examples of events that may cause PTSD are military combat, rape, natural disaster, physical assault, emotional abuse, and sexual assault. Even though these are the most common causes of PTSD, anyone who has experienced psychological stress may develop PTSD.
