PostTraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)  is a mental health condition that only develops after someone goes through or see life-threatening events. 

For many veterans, PTSD is a result of traumatic events they may have witnessed or experienced directly. They may experience troublesome and intrusive symptoms, such as reliving the event (flashbacks), hypervigilance (being worried that something or someone is going to hurt them), avoiding situations that remind them of the event, or experiencing increased negative thoughts and feelings.
