About PTSD

Night terrors, flashbacks, evenings spent in isolation. These are just some of the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). More than eight million Americans live with some of these symptoms – the reaction to a personally traumatic experience. It is estimated at least 600,000 post-9/11 veterans are part of that population living with PTSD. Wounded Warrior Project wants to spread awareness about PTSD symptoms and effects, as well as advance the discussion about diagnosis, treatment, and care for those suffering from the effects of trauma.
