Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop in individuals who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. Trauma is an emotional response to a distressing or disturbing event, and when the effects of trauma persist and cause significant distress, they may lead to PTSD.
C-PTSD is a mental health condition that can develop as a result of exposure to prolonged and repeated traumatic events or situations, especially during childhood or in situations where escape is difficult. C-PTSD is considered a subtype or a more complex form of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
C-PTSD is characterized by a range of symptoms that go beyond those typically associated with PTSD.
