Understanding PTSD Among Veterans


Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that manifests in individuals who have undergone a traumatic experience. This condition, which affects approximately 7% of Americans, is considered a natural reaction to events such as sexual abuse, physical assault, violence, or serious accidents.

While around eight million adults in the United States are afflicted by PTSD, one particular group bears a significant burden of this disorder: American veterans. Veterans often encounter injuries, death, and other life-threatening situations during both combat and non-combat scenarios. Unfortunately, the severity of the trauma means that PTSD can persist throughout their lives.
