PTSD

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Classified as an anxiety disorder. PTSD is complex mental health condition.

Classic Definition: 

“PTSD is a mental health problem. Some people develop it after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event. For example, things like combat. A natural disaster. A car accident. Assault or sexual assault. Certainly a traumatic event can cause you to have upsetting memories. Feel on edge. As a result, it can cause you to have trouble sleeping.

Consequently, if you still have these symptoms after a few months, you may have PTSD. On the other hand, symptoms may start later. However, they they may come and go over time.

Complex PTSD

You can develop complex PTSD also. This is also called a “disorder of extreme stress”. This results from exposure to traumatic circumstances. Consequently, trauma can be in combat or otherwise.

Secondary PTSD

Secondary PTSD is also known as compassion fatigue. As a result, this can effect people whose line of work exposes them to traumatic events. Consequently, it can also effect those who treat trauma survivors. So, people exposed to rescuing others from traumatic events may be at risk for secondary PTSD.

Occupations at risk for secondary PTSD include emergency medicine specialists. Police officers. Firefighters. Search-and rescue personnel and disaster investigators.
