Dr. Mamta JainTalks on Myths about PTSD

So, below are a few myths and facts surrounding PTSD:
Myth:

It is a common myth that Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder occurs only after a traumatic event. People believe that Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can only happen after someone has experienced the event directly.

Fact:
In fact, it is not necessary for that person to experience direct abuse. Anyone can have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder even if they see someone else experiencing a traumatic experience. So, if a family member or loved one is having an event, just by looking, one can get Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Also, it may be after the death of a loved one.

Myth:
People often say that time will heal. They will always tell the person suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder to give it time.

Fact:
It takes years to conquer Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, with professional help. An adult may still be involved in child abuse years ago when the event is over. Giving it time will not heal the wound. Therefore, treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is important to seek professional help.

One of the most widespread myths is that only soldiers get Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Even in movies and TV shows it is shown that soldiers are the only ones suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Therefore, it has become a common belief among people.

Fact:
It is true that statistically the military and military are the largest numbers of people suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. However, it is not necessary to be the only one who can have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. It can affect anyone who has experienced or witnessed a traumatic event.

Myth:
People often think that a person with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is very weak and has no ability to get over it. This thinking is not limited to the prevalence of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder but to all mental health disorders. Therefore, people began to judge a man by his sickness.

Fact:
The sad reality is that a person with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is not weak but, in fact, suffers from mental illness. It’s not in their hands to get out of it just like that. It takes the right treatment to get out of it. This judgmental behavior makes it difficult for a person to overcome any illness.
