Although PTSD is often a chronic condition, it does not have to be a permanent life sentence.
Post-traumatic stress disorder is an anxiety disorder people experience after traumatic events like war, diseases, accidents, and sexual abuse. If you have experienced some kind of traumatic event in your life and are faced with replays of the painful event, if you feel depressed or anxious after experiencing this flashback, then you might be suffering from PTSD. Most of these symptoms appear within a few weeks and some other years.
S&G’s support for PTSD is based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). With CBT, combined with the help of a therapist, you would be taken through these traumatic memories because this is the best way to overcome them. This is done under controlled conditions by a therapist at a pace that suits you. Once you can pass through these situations with the anxiety becoming less and less per time, making it less of a problem, it gives you the chance of a normal life, a life free from past traumatic events.
