The Chad Fourney Memorial Foundation is a non-profit organization that is devoted to raising the awareness of post-tramatic stress disorder. Knowing what to look for and taking the proper steps to help someone get treatment can save the life of a family member, friend, relative, or loved one.
What is PTSD?
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event: either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.
Many people who go through traumatic events have difficulty adjusting and coping for a while, but they don't have PTSD — with time and good self-care, they usually get better. But if the symptoms get worse or last for months or even years and interfere with your functioning, you may have PTSD.
