What is PTSD?

PTSD is a mental health disorder that can develop soon after or in the months or years following a traumatic event. You may be at increased risk for PTSD if you are directly involved in the trauma or witness events like:

  • Neglect
  • Violence
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Auto accidents
  • Military combat
  • Death of a loved one

The traumatic experience can cause a range of symptoms that affect how you think, feel, and act. PTSD symptoms can worsen if not properly managed, increasing your risk for other mental health disorders and substance use disorders.

The Woodlands Psychiatry and Counseling offers holistic and traditional therapies to ease symptoms of PTSD. Dr. Bishai provides inpatient and outpatient care for adults and adolescents who need help managing PTSD in the long term.

How is PTSD treated?
