Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a type of response triggered by a traumatic event, either through experiencing or witnessing it. It can happen through different time periods, and most people have difficulty adjusting and coping after the event. PTSD can develop at any age and from any event. The event doesn’t have to be a serious or dangerous event, sometimes it can occur when a friend or family member is the one experiencing danger or harm. Such as an unexpected death.

Symptoms of PTSD?

Just like any other mental health condition, the symptoms are different for every person.
But here are some of the most common symptoms:

  • Flashbacks
  • Nightmares
  • Avoiding Certain Situations
  • Changed in feelings about yourself or others

“Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and hears the screams, healing can begin.”
