According to the Mayo Clinic, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (“PTSD”) is a “mental health condition that is triggered by a terrifying event—either experiencing it or witnessing it.” PTSD onset can be unpredictable: it may occur after a single event or several events; it may occur in response to a dangerous or harmful event that occurred to a loved one; or it may occur soon after the event or several months or even years after. Additionally, some individuals who face traumatic events do not develop PTSD.
Like any injury, PTSD takes time to heal and requires the help of trained medical professionals. If you have or believe someone you know has PTSD, it is important to get treatment. Understandably, the path towards treating PTSD is challenging. However, the attorneys at Meuser Law Office, P.A., can help make that road a little easier.
