Have you or someone you love experienced a life-threatening or terrifying event? Such events may include, but are not limited to, military combat, natural disasters, severe injuries or random acts of violence. Traumatic events like these happen every day to people from all walks of life.
While it is normal for most people to have some stress reactions after a traumatic event, if these reactions do not go away for a period of time, or if they significantly disrupt your life, you may be suffering from PTSD.
If you are concerned about yourself or someone you love, take a few minutes to complete an anonymous self-assessment. A self-assessment is a very short list of questions to help a person determine if they need to be further assessed by a medical professional. While the assessment does not provide a definitive diagnosis, it will provide information on how to seek help if you are experiencing PTSD symptoms.
