What is post-traumatic stress disorder?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental disorder that is the result of trauma. A person with PTSD will not only experience a traumatic event, but they will also relive the experience through recurring memories, flashbacks, or nightmares. Due to this, those with PTSD are subject to ongoing symptoms such as sudden emotional reactions or avoidance techniques that protect them from reliving the trauma.
