Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can occur after someone experiences a traumatic event. The actual event can be short-lived, such as witnessing an accident or being a victim of a crime, or it can be long-term, like living in an abusive situation or being in a war zone. Not everyone who experiences such events develops PTSD and researchers don’t know why some people do while others don’t.
