Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a type of anxiety disorder which a person may develop after being involved in, or witnessing any traumatic events. The condition was first recognised in soldiers and has been known by a variety of names, such as 'shell shock'. But it's not only diagnosed in soldiers but also a wide range of traumatic experiences can lead to PTSD. PTSD may be described differently in some situations: if a person’s symptoms emerge more than six months after experiencing trauma, this might be described as 'delayed PTSD' or 'delayed-onset PTSD'. If a person experienced trauma at an early age or it lasted for a long time, you might be given a diagnosis of 'complex PTSD'. PTSD that develops after a traumatic experience of childbirth is also known as 'birth trauma'.
