Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Dallas Counseling for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition which originates in a disturbing or terrifying event — whether that event is experienced or witnessed. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as

 uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

Many people who go through traumatic events have difficulty adjusting and coping for a while, but they don't have PTSD — with time and good self-care, they usually get better. But if the symptoms get worse or last for months or even years and interfere with your functioning, you may have PTSD. Getting effective treatment after PTSD symptoms develop can be critical to reduce symptoms and improve function.
