Post-traumatic stress disorder, known as PTSD, is a mental health condition that arises in individuals who have undergone traumatic experiences. This condition affects approximately 7% of Americans and is considered a natural response to traumas such as sexual abuse, physical assault, violence, or serious accidents.

While around eight million adults grapple with PTSD, one specific group bears a significant impact – American veterans. Veterans often witness injuries, death, and other life-threatening events in both war and noncombat situations. Regrettably, PTSD can persist throughout the lifetimes of veterans, influenced by the intensity of the trauma they have faced.
