Understanding PTSD Among Veterans

Post-traumatic stress disorder, known as PTSD, is a mental health condition that manifests in individuals who have undergone traumatic experiences. This condition, affecting approximately 7% of Americans, is a natural response to events like sexual abuse, physical assault, violence, or serious accidents.

While around eight million adults grapple with PTSD, a specific demographic faces a disproportionate impact—American veterans. Veterans often bear witness to injuries, death, and other life-threatening events in both wartime and noncombat situations. Regrettably, due to the profound impact of trauma, PTSD can persist throughout the lifetimes of veterans.
