Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a complex psychiatric disorder associated with substantial disability and poor quality of life that occurs in people who have experienced or witnessed one or more traumatic events. Traumatic events can include natural disasters, serious accidents, war and combat, rape and sexual assault, intimate partner violence and bullying. Diagnostic criteria for PTSD require symptoms to have persisted for more than one month after the traumatic event and that the symptoms have caused distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
