PTSD

PTSD can affect anyone. 1 out of 2 people encounter trauma at some point in their lifetime. About 20% of those people can go on and develop Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. 

Injury, Trauma, or a shock can be a cause of  helplessness, fear, and horror; these feelings are triggered by crime, natural disasters, road traffic accidents, the death of a loved one, conflicts, and traumatic childbirth.  

People who have undergone stressful circumstances can react in a strange way and at diverse periods of time, even after an incident.  Post-traumatic Stress Disorder could be defined as a normal reaction to an unusual situation or set of events.

Diagnosis:

The process of diagnosing PTSD in India requires exposure to an event that possibly involved death, violence, or serious injury. The exposure can happen in the following ways:

  • Directly experiencing the trauma
  • Witnessing the traumatic event happening to someone else
  • Learning that someone close to you experienced a traumatic event

Repeatedly being exposed to a traumatic scene (for example, soldiers who are at war or first responders who usually witness graphic events that lead to PTSD). You may develop PTSD, if your episodes continue for more than a month then it's time to seek professional help. If you don’t seek help in time, the episodes will hinder your ability to function in social and professional settings.
