Veteran PTSD & Suicide

Post-Traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can occur after the Veteran experiences a traumatic event. During this type of event, the Veteran believes his/her life or others’ lives are in danger. She/he may feel afraid or feel that they have no control over what is happening.

After the event, the Veteran may feel scared, confused, or angry. If these feelings don’t go away or they get worse, the symptoms may disrupt the person’s life, making it hard to continue daily activities. All Veterans with PTSD have lived through a traumatic event that caused them to fear for their lives, see horrible things, and feel helpless. Strong emotions caused by the event create changes in the brain that may result in PTSD. Most Veterans who go through a traumatic event have some symptoms at the beginning. Yet only some will develop PTSD; the reason for this is not clear.

In the worst cases, Veterans suffering from severe PTSD experience suicidal thoughts and an alarming number of them ultimately commit suicide.
