Posttraumatic Stress Disorder – PTSD

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), also referred to as posttraumatic stress or posttraumatic stress syndrome, is caused by experiencing a traumatic event. Even though the event has passed, many people continue to experience symptoms for months or even years afterward.

PTSD is often prevalent in veterans who were exposed to combat during their time in service. Sometimes PTSD also manifests in the form of other mental health conditions such as anxiety or depression. Other symptoms of PTSD include re-experiencing the traumatic event or flashbacks, difficulty sleeping, hyper vigilance, irritability, and isolation from friends and family. 

As a result of these symptoms, many veterans with PTSD experience difficulty functioning in an occupational environment. For more information about PTSD or how to obtain treatment, please see VA’s National Center for PTSD webpage.
