PTSD Q&A

What is PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health disorder caused by severe trauma that might involve abuse, military combat, or being in or witnessing a terrifying event. This condition can cause extremely uncomfortable symptoms that can cause problems at work, school, and in your relationships. 

The experts at Peace, Hope & Harmony, Inc., have many years of experience treating patients and offering superior care. Their treatments can improve your symptoms and change your quality of life for the better.

What are symptoms of PTSD?

PTSD symptoms can occur months or even years after you experience a traumatic event. Symptoms might include:

  • Depression
  • Hopelessness
  • Distressing memories
  • Flashbacks
  • Nightmares
  • Memory issues
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Being startled easily
  • Loss of interest in favorite activities
  • Relationship issues
  • Avoiding people and places

PTSD can also lead to excessive drinking. If you’ve experienced trauma in your past and have any of the above symptoms, call Peace, Hope & Harmony, Inc., right away for the expert care you need. 

What puts you at risk for PTSD?

Your chance of developing PTSD increases with:

  • Experiencing childhood abuse
  • Being in military combat
  • Being a first responder
  • Having anxiety or depression
  • Having family members that have mental health issues
  • Lacking a network of support
  • Living with long-lasting trauma

Some people can go through a traumatic event and never experience PTSD. However, if you might be at risk, it’s best to see your provider at Peace, Hope & Harmony, Inc., for psychiatric consultation and evaluation. They can give you an accurate diagnosis and provide personalized treatment specific to your circumstances, condition, and needs.

How is PTSD treated?

Though symptoms of PTSD might not appear for months or years after a traumatic experience, you should seek treatment as soon as you notice symptoms. 

The team at Peace, Hope & Harmony, Inc., first offers a thorough assessment. They also have a modern pharmacological approach to help you recover, which provides medications to relieve your symptoms. In some cases, medication use might also require psychotherapy (talk therapy) or cognitive processing therapy to help change your thoughts and behaviors.

You can rely on your provider to offer superior, compassionate care with a personalized treatment plan.

If you think you might have PTSD or have begun to experience symptoms, call Peace, Hope & Harmony today. You can also book online or schedule a telehealth visit as a convenient option.
