Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

What is PTSD?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a complex mental health condition that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event.

There are a number of symptoms that can include flashbacks, nightmares, intrusive thoughts, avoidance behaviours, hypervigilance, and emotional dysregulation.  If you’re struggling with all or some of these challenges, seeking professional help is crucial.
