Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

PTSD is an anxiety disorder that can occur after a person has experienced a traumatic event. Symptoms of PTSD may start at any time after a traumatic event and may come and go over time. Some common symptoms include reliving the event, feeling on guard or numb, or avoiding places and things that may remind a person of the event. The resources in this section are designed to help you learn more about these problems and their treatment.
