Comprehending PTSD in Veterans

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

While around eight million adults grapple with PTSD, one specific group faces a disproportionate impact — American veterans.
