Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Diploma

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health problem that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault. While it is normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after this type of experience, if these symptoms last more than a few weeks, it may be PTSD.

PTSD can cause a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Reliving the event through unwanted memories, flashbacks, or nightmares
  • Avoidance of thinking or talking about the event
  • Avoidance of places, people, or activities that remind you of the event
  • Negative changes in mood or thinking, such as feeling numb or detached, having negative thoughts about yourself or the world, or losing interest in activities you used to enjoy
  • Changes in physical or emotional reactions, such as feeling constantly on guard, being easily startled, or having trouble sleeping or concentrating

Therapy can help you to understand your PTSD and to develop coping skills. Medication can help to reduce the symptoms of PTSD, such as anxiety and depression.

With treatment, most people with PTSD can recover and go on to live healthy, productive lives.
