What is PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a condition that can cause you to suffer both physically and mentally. In recent years, it has become a much more widely recognised condition and is now better understood as a serious psychological issue. Symptoms can include:

  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Feelings of anger
  • Depression
  • Feelings of isolation
  • Flashbacks and night terrors
  • Issues communicating with others

PTSD can have an impact on every aspect of your life, including work, family and social interactions, as symptoms can last for weeks, months or years. Although most sufferers of PTSD can recover without help, it’s important you notify your GP as soon as any symptoms become apparent.

Who is likely to suffer with PTSD?

Anyone who has witnessed or been involved in a traumatic event can suffer from PTSD. YouClaim has experience working with many people who have suffered with this psychological condition, including:

  • Members of the armed forces
  • Mothers who have suffered from a traumatic birth
  • Victims of domestic violence
  • Victims of sexual assault
  • Witnesses to a death

We have also assisted those who have suffered from PTSD as a result of a whiplash injury. Although these two conditions may seem unrelated, damage to the nervous system can affect the brain’s unconscious and subconscious processes.
