Comprehending PTSD in Veterans

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that manifests in individuals who have undergone traumatic experiences. It affects approximately 7% of Americans and is a natural response to events 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. The exposure to injuries, death, and life-threatening situations in both war and noncombat scenarios makes veterans susceptible to this disorder. Unfortunately, depending on the severity of the trauma, PTSD can persist throughout their lifetimes.
