What is PTSD?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a psychological reaction to a severely stressful or physically threatening event. It is a psychiatric condition that affects almost 3.5% of the general adult population every year. Research has also shown that approximately 8% of people experience PTSD at some point in their lives.

Any events that an individual finds distressful, frightening, or deeply disturbing such as accidents, losses, abuse, and neglect, can be traumatic and may cause PTSD.

DSM5 defines a traumatic event as exposure to actual or threatened death, serious injury, or sexual violence. Some examples of situations that can trigger the development of post-traumatic stress disorder include the following:

  • Being involved in, or witnessing, a car accident
  • Undergoing major surgery
  • Experiencing or witnessing natural disasters
  • Experiencing or witnessing violent crimes and community violence
  • Experiencing chronic physical or sexual abuse
  • Experiencing repetitive on-the-job trauma
  • Having exposure to and/or witnessing crises
  • The sudden death of a loved one
