Post Traumatic Syndrome or PTSD is a condition that develops after a traumatic and/or terrifying event, such as a sexual or physical assault, the unexpected death of a loved one, or a natural disaster. People with PTSD often have lasting and frightening thoughts and memories of the event and tend to be emotionally numb.
There are over 2.3 million American veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan war at least 20% of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans have PTSD and/or Depression. Military counselors state that the percentage of veterans with PTSD is much higher; when combined with TBI. More active duty personnel die by own hand than combat in 2012 according to the New York Times.
According to The National Institute of Mental Health approximately 7.7 million American adults age 18 and older, or about 3.5 percent of people in this age group have PTSD. PTSD can develop at any age, including childhood, and frequently occurs after violent personal assaults such as war, rape, mugging, or domestic violence; terrorism; natural or human-caused disasters; and accidents.
