What Are Traumatic Disorders?
Traumatic disorders (also known as Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders) are mental health conditions that are caused by traumatic events in a person’s life. Stressors that can cause traumatic disorders include abuse, neglect, witnessing violence, natural disasters, and more.
Unlike other types of mental health conditions, traumatic disorders have a clear cause. These disorders can cause symptoms that are similar to other conditions, such as anxiety disorders or depression. A mental health care provider can help you get an accurate diagnosis, so you can get the best possible treatment.
