What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?

PTSD is an anxiety disorder that victims of traumatic events can develop. It often occurs when the victim has experienced a catastrophic situation or highly stressful event. Some of these events include war, vehicle accidents, death of a loved one, assault, childhood abuse, or kidnapping.

It is estimated that approximately 30 percent of car accident victims develop PTSD, or between three to seven million people.
