Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder, commonly called PTSD, is a mental health condition that is triggered by a terrifying even – either experiencing or witnessing it.  Most people who go through traumatic events may have temporary challenges adjusting and coping, but with time and self-care, they usually get better.  If the symptoms continue or get worse and interfere with your day-to-day activities, you may have PTSD.

PTSD is experienced differently by sufferers, but common symptoms may include:

  • Unpleasant memories
  • Avoidance of places, activities, or people related to the traumatic event
  • Negative changes in thinking and mood
  • Changes in physical and emotional reactions
  • Changes in the intensity of symptoms

Through a multifaceted approach, those with PTSD are able to regain a sense of control over their lives and emotions.  Call today to schedule time with one of our experienced providers to discuss an evaluation and treatment options.
