What is PTSD?
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that develops in response to experiencing or witnessing traumatic events. These events can range from accidents and violence to natural disasters and combat. PTSD can cause a range of distressing symptoms, including flashbacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, and emotional numbness.
When should I seek treatment for PTSD?
If you’re experiencing symptoms such as recurring distressing memories, avoidance of triggers, negative changes in mood and thought patterns, or heightened reactions, it’s important to seek treatment for PTSD. Early intervention can lead to better outcomes and improved quality of life.
How is PTSD treated?
PTSD is treated through a variety of therapeutic approaches. These may include psychotherapy (such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and exposure therapy), medication to manage symptoms, and complementary therapies like mindfulness and yoga. Treatment is personalized to your specific needs and may involve a combination of these approaches.
