Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that manifests in individuals who have undergone a traumatic experience. It affects approximately 7% of the American population and is recognized as a natural response to trauma such as sexual abuse, physical assault, violence, or severe accidents.
While around eight million adults in the United States grapple with PTSD, veterans constitute a particularly affected demographic. Exposure to injuries, fatalities, and other life-threatening situations in both combat and non-combat scenarios leaves a lasting impact on American veterans. Unfortunately, the intensity of trauma experienced can result in PTSD affecting veterans throughout their lives.
