Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychological and behavioral condition. Its symptoms may include disturbing thoughts, feelings, or dreams about the events, mental or physical distress to trauma-related cues, attempts to avoid trauma-related cues, changes in a person’s thinking and feelings, and an increase in the fight-or-flight response.
These symptoms persist for more than a month following the event. Young children are less likely to exhibit distress and may instead express their memories through play. Suicide and intentional self-harm are more likely in people who have PTSD.
If you know someone struggling with PTSD please call a doctor immediately, so that they can refer them to the right institution and help them assess what they are dealing with right now.
