According to the National Center for PTSD, between 7 and 8 percent of the population will experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during their lifetime. Men, women, and children can experience PTSD as a result of trauma in their lives. Events due to combat, accidents, disasters, and abuse are just a few of the causes of PTSD. No matter the reason, PTSD is treatable, but not everyone seeks treatment. There are resources available to help diagnose PTSD and get help. There is no shame in seeking assistance.
