There are good PTSD treatments that help people work through their memories and emotions and reduce or eliminate their symptoms.
The memories and feelings never go away completely, but they don’t need to be upsetting or disrupt your life and relationships. Most people with PTSD never seek professional help because of the stigma associated with seeking mental health care or lack of information about where to go for help. This is unfortunate, because PTSD is a condition that can be treated very successfully by a number of methods, and the suffering of people with PTSD is greatly reduced if they seek professional help. If you or someone you love is struggling with signs of PTSD, a mental health professional can help you find the combination of treatments that works best for you or your loved one.
