Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition triggered by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. For many, time and self-care can heal the trauma of such events, but for some, the experience leads to long-lasting symptoms that can interfere with daily activities. If these symptoms persist for months or years, you may have PTSD, and getting treatment is crucial to recovering from the trauma of your experience. At Ascend Wellness MBS, we are here to help you process what you’ve been through, which can help to reduce your symptoms and improve function.
Symptoms of PTSD are generally grouped into four primary types – intrusive memories, avoidance, negative changes in thinking and mood, and changes in physical and emotional reactions.
