Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD as it is commonly called, is a serious mental health condition caused by exposure to something traumatic, such as experiencing or witnessing violence or a catastrophic event. What many people don’t realize is that PTSD isn’t limited to adults—it can also affect teenagers.
PTSD is often seen in children and adolescents who are experiencing other mental health concerns, such as depression, panic disorders, or generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
