Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • PTSD is relatively unusual after a trauma or emergencies. It is as likely to develop anxiety disorders or depression, and more likely to develop problems with misuse of alcohol than they are to develop PTSD.
  • It is difficult to know who might suffer from PTSD immediately after a traumatic event as diagnoses are not made until symptoms have persisted for
  • some time.
  • Providing PFA can reduce the risk of people developing PTSD.
