Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder caused by a very stressful, frightening or distressing event (or events).
Someone with PTSD often relives the traumatic event through nightmares and flashbacks, and may experience feelings of isolation, irritability and guilt, as well as anxiety and depression.
You may also have problems sleeping (such as insomnia) and find it difficult to concentrate.
These symptoms are often severe and persistent enough to have a significant impact on your day-to-day life.
PTSD can affect anyone, but is more prevalent in certain occupations:(www.patient.info/health/post-traumatic-stress-disorder-leaflet)The rate of PTSD among the general population is about 3% – that’s almost 2 million people in the UK PTSD is suffered by around: • 1 in 5 firefighters • 1 in 3 teenage survivors of car crashes • 1 in 2 female rape victims. • 2 in 3 prisoners of war. Women are twice as likely to suffer as men
