Comprehending PTSD in Veterans

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

While around eight million adults grapple with PTSD, one specific group bears a significant impact — American veterans. Veterans often witness injuries, death, and other life-threatening events in both war and noncombat situations. Unfortunately, owing to the intensity of the trauma, PTSD can persist throughout their lifetimes.
