Post-traumatic stress disorder
Mood disorder experienced following a traumatic incident



This is how you feel when you have PTSD.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder caused by very stressful, frightening, or distressing events.

Someone with PTSD often relives the traumatic event through nightmares and flashbacks and may experience feelings of isolation, irritability, and guilt.

    The most common causes are:
  • serious road accidents
  • violent personal assaults, such as sexual assault, mugging, or robbery
  • serious health problems
  • childbirth experiences
