So many of our veterans, who put their own well being at risk for us to be able to enjoy our freedoms, suffer from PTSD in silence.
But PTSD is not limited to just service members.
After a traumatic event, it’s normal to think, act, and feel differently than usual—but most people start to feel better after a few weeks or months. Talk to a doctor or mental health care provider if your symptoms:
- Last longer than a few months
- Are very upsetting
- Disrupt your daily life
“Getting better” means different things for different people but there are many different treatment options for PTSD. Learn more about PTSD treatment at https://www.ptsd.va.gov/understand_tx/tx_basics.asp
