PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder, is a mental illness that occurs in people who have experienced a traumatic event. The condition affects about 7% of Americans and is considered a natural response to trauma, such as sexual assault, physical assault, violence, or a serious accident.
Although around eight million adults suffer from PTSD, one segment of the population is severely affected by the condition. American veterans frequently witness injuries, deaths, and other life-threatening events in both combat and non-combat situations.
In order to understand a person’s experience with this debilitating condition, it is important to establish the facts about the condition and assess its severity. For more PTSD stats, symptoms, and information, visit our resource.
