The main treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are psychological therapies and medicine.
Traumatic events can be very difficult to come to terms with, but confronting your feelings and seeking professional help is often the only way of effectively treating PTSD.
It's possible for PTSD to be successfully treated many years after the traumatic event or events occurred, which means it's never too late to seek help.
Working through the resources below will help you to increase your understanding of your symptoms. Before having treatment for PTSD, a detailed assessment of your symptoms will be carried out to ensure treatment is tailored to your individual needs. This may be carried out by a GP or specialist. Contact your G.P. to explore options available to you.
