PTSD stands for post-traumatic stress disorder, which is a mental disorder that can occur after exposure to a frightening, dangerous, threatening stressful event.

People who have these experiences may suffer from difficulties such as constant preoccupation with the traumatic event and re-experiencing in the waking or sleeping state, tension and arousal, feelings of insecurity, withdrawal, and avoiding reminders of the traumatic event.
