Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) does not result only from experiencing war and combat.
You may be also at risk of PTSD if you have experienced trauma in other forms. This includes: childhood abuse, domestic violence, other severe or prolonged abuse (whether verbal, physical, emotional, or sexual), experiencing crime, assault, or bullying, or surviving a disaster or personal tragedy.
