PTSD Q & A

What causes PTSD?    

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a type of mental health condition that occurs when you experience or witness a traumatic event. PTSD can be triggered by or related to:

  • Working in a field that exposes you to traumatic events (common with military personnel)
  • Life changes, including divorce or death of a spouse or child
  • Going through or witnessing a car accident
  • Abuse, including childhood abuse
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Substance abuse
  • Sexual assault

Your risk of developing PTSD is higher if you have mental health disorders, including depression, that runs in your family.  

When should I see a mental health provider for PTSD?

The expert mental health providers at Revived Soul Medical P.C. encourage you to come in at the first sign of PTSD. Common PTSD symptoms that warrant mental health intervention include:

  • Panic attacks

  • Feeling “numb” and emotionless
  • Distancing yourself from loved ones 
  • Recurrent memories, flashbacks, or nightmares
  • Self-destructive behavior, such as drinking too much
