7%-8% of the world’s population will suffer from PTSD at some point in their life. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects many people who have experienced a scary or shocking event. People with PTSD feel stressed and/or afraid even a long time after the event has happened and when they are not in danger any more. For the first time, PTSD symptoms may occur months or years after the traumatic experience.
Do not hesitate to ask for help if you believe that you or your loved ones might suffer from PTSD. Luckily, today there are a number of treatment options available including different kinds of psychotherapy and medications.
