Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that manifests in individuals who have undergone a traumatic experience. This condition, affecting approximately 7% of Americans, is recognized as a natural response to events such as sexual abuse, physical assault, violence, or severe accidents.
While around eight million adults grapple with PTSD, a specific demographic is significantly impacted: American veterans. Veterans often bear witness to injuries, fatalities, and other life-threatening occurrences in both combat and non-combat scenarios. Regrettably, owing to the severity of the trauma, PTSD can persist throughout the lives of veterans.
