Post-traumatic stress disorder, also known as PTSD, is a mental health condition that emerges in individuals who have undergone a traumatic incident. This condition affects roughly 7% of the U.S. population and is regarded as a natural response to traumatic experiences, including but not limited to sexual abuse, physical assault, acts of violence, or severe accidents.
While approximately eight million adults grapple with PTSD, one specific demographic bears a significant burden of this disorder: veterans. Veterans frequently encounter injuries, death, and other life-threatening situations during both wartime and noncombat scenarios. Unfortunately, due to the profound impact of these traumas, PTSD can persist throughout the lives of veterans.
