Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Following a traumatic event, series of events, or set of conditions, PTSD can affect an individual’s physical, emotional, social, and mental wellbeing.

What is it?

PTSD is a psychiatric disorder that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. Those with PTSD struggle with intense, disturbing thoughts and feelings related to their experience that last long after the danger has passed. Symptoms normally appear within 3 months of the event and persist for months and sometimes years. These symptoms can have a detrimental effect on daily life and relationships. 

Many of those struggling with PTSD need professional treatment to recover. We offer a range of services for those struggling with PTSD. To learn more, schedule an informational call with one of our health navigators.
