Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder is a mental disorder that develops after a person is exposed to a traumatic event, such as sexual assault, warfare or other threats on a person's life. Symptoms may even include disturbing thoughts, feelings or dreams related to particular events, physical or mental distress to trauma-related cues. These symptoms will last for more than a month after the event. Young children are less likely to show distress but may express their memories through play. Those with PTSD are at a higher risk of suicide.  Persons who are considered at risk include for example, victims of natural disasters, combat military personnel and victims of any violent crime.
