Post-traumatic stress disorder, commonly known as PTSD, is a mental health condition that manifests in individuals who have undergone a traumatic event. This condition affects approximately 7% of Americans and is viewed as a natural response to events like sexual abuse, physical assault, violence, or severe accidents.
While around eight million adults grapple with PTSD, a specific group experiences a disproportionate impact: American veterans. Veterans frequently witness injuries, fatalities, and other life-threatening incidents in both wartime and non-combat situations. Unfortunately, depending on the severity of the trauma, PTSD can persist in veterans throughout their lives. To learn more about PTSD for veterans, check out the following infographic.
