PTSD can be triggered by natural disasters, experiences in war zones, an accident, an assault—any intensely traumatic and/or life-threatening event. It is important for sufferers to be evaluated and then receive treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder.
PTSD can also vary depending on whether it resulted from a single traumatic event, such as a person involved in a traumatic car wreck or the victim of a single crime. Others suffer multiple incidents of the same type of trauma. PTSD can be seen in military personnel and also those who suffered prolonged abuse as a child. Others develop PTSD after being exposed to multiple different types of trauma. An example of numerous different traumatic events would be surviving a housefire, then becoming a victim of a crime months later.
