According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 3.6% of American adults experience some form of PTSD each year. According to the statistics, women are three times more affected by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder than men.
PTSD is something that affects the lives of many people negatively. Most common among veterans in the battlefield and victims of sexual assault, PTSD can come from abuse, intimidation, natural disasters or simply by the passing of a relative or friend. Whether caused by emotional, psychological, or physical trauma, PTSD can persist for months, years, and even for life.
