What's up everyone? I'll like from you my audience to give feedback on what you think about PTSD. I did one before but I feel like my message wasn't fully understandable so please cooperate.

Who/what is your target audience? The United States military started a large campaign back around 2005ish which includes web sites, posters, information cards, emergency numbers, counseling numbers, etc. PTSD is a mental health disorder that has existed for a long time, but it wasn't until relatively recently that it was empirically studied. PTSD has manifested not just in those with military experience, either. It has been known to manifest after natural disaster, house fires, rape, homicide, domestic abuse, accidental injuries such as broken bones at a water park, motor vehicle accidents, etc.

PTSD has a defined set of anxiety disorder symptoms that must last a minimum of 1 month, and may initially be diagnosed as an acute stress disorder. It also does not require the person to have experienced the trauma them self, but could be a result of having heard about a trauma or having someone they know experience trauma. It can also occur when a significant person is in a traumatic situation and the non-victim develops PTSD due to concern for the victim.
