What are Symptoms of PTSD and its effect on mental health?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a collection of reactions that can occur after a traumatic event. The likelihood of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is dependent on the nature of the event, but between 5 and 10 percent of Australians will be affected by the disorder at some point in their lives.

PTSD is characterized by the following symptoms:

Reliving the traumatic event through distressing, unwanted memories, vivid nightmares and/or flashbacks. When one is reminded of the traumatic event, one may experience strong emotional reactions as well as physical reactions like heart palpitations or being unable to breathe.

Avoiding activities, places, people, thoughts, or feelings that evoke memories of the traumatic event.

Fear, rage, guilt, or a general sense of apathy are all examples of negative thoughts and feelings. People who have been through a traumatic event may place blame on themselves or others, isolate themselves from friends and family, or lose interest in the things they used to enjoy.

I’m all tense and agitated. If you have trouble sleeping or concentrating, feel angry or irritable, take risks, or are easily startled, this could indicate that you are hyper vigilant and on guard all the time.

People with PTSD are prone to developing co-occurring mental health issues like depression or anxiety. People who find it difficult to cope with life’s challenges may turn to alcohol or drugs.
