What is PTSD?

PTSD stands for post-traumatic stress disorder and it’s the most common mental health issue we treat.

It’s one of a few mental health conditions where you have to have gone through a specific type of traumatic event to get it – you must have thought your life or someone’s else’s life was in danger, at risk of serious injury or attack.

One of our psychologists talks about the symptoms of PTSD, how it develops and what it can feel like.
