Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a mental health disorder, initiated after a traumatic event, has profound effect on the lives of those impacted by it. These traumatic event could be a real or perceived threat of injury or death: including medical event, military combat, physical or sexual assault, an accident, a natural disaster etc. Most people who experience one of these events have no problems afterward, but a small percentage develop PTSD. These individuals need support and understanding. However, most of them don’t seek treatment fearing the stigma associated with the disorder. Thus observance of “PTSD Awareness Day” will help bring awareness to the public, eliminate stigma associated with the disorder, and provide better care.
