Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects approximately 7% of the American population. Veterans, especially those who have been deployed to war zones, are at an elevated risk of developing PTSD. Research indicates that approximately 30% of veterans who served in Afghanistan and Iraq during the respective wars experience PTSD.
Living with PTSD can prove exceptionally challenging when left undiagnosed. The severity of symptoms can vary from mild to profound, potentially leading to significant life changes. Gaining insight into the symptoms of PTSD, the associated health conditions, and the available treatment options can empower veterans and their loved ones to lead healthier and more fulfilling lives.
