Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in Returning Service Members: Warrior Projects

 

What is PTSD?

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) may be experienced by individuals who have been exposed to extreme or life-threatening situations.  Symptoms range from irritability, flashbacks, or nightmares to physiological symptoms such as sweaty palms or increased heart rate. 

Some of these symptoms may be helpful in a threatening situation, but can be debilitating when they persist long after the danger has passed – negatively affecting your life and the people around you.  If you do experience PTSD there are effective treatments to help you feel better.
