PTSD Resources for Veterans

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, commonly referred to as PTSD, is a type of anxiety disorder that develops after exposure to a traumatic event. An event can be considered traumatic if it is terrifying, shocking, or extremely stressful. Military service members are at considerable risk for developing PTSD due to the traumatic nature of combat. Many veterans have either witnessed traumatic events or directly experienced them during their service, making them increasingly susceptible to unwanted and troublesome symptoms associated with PTSD.
