Trauma & PTSD Q & A
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health issue that can occur after a frightening or traumatic event. As a result of the trauma, you may have nightmares, flashbacks, or intrusive thoughts that interfere with your daily life.
You can develop PTSD if you witness the event or experience it personally. Common triggers of PTSD can include:
- Sexual abuse
- Auto accidents
- Military combat
- Death of a loved one
You might also develop symptoms of PTSD after a natural disaster, robbery, or the diagnosis of a life-threatening medical condition.

- Loss of concentration

Being easily startled and avoiding people, places, or objects that remind you of the event can also be warning signs of PTSD.
