Violence, excessive bullying or harassment, or a natural disaster that occurs at your workplace in Bergen County can be a traumatic event that affects you emotionally and mentally. Perhaps you are struggling to concentrate on daily tasks or you find yourself reliving the experience over and over again. You may be suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder.
The National Institute of Mental Health states that men are less prone to have PTSD than women, but it can occur in either sex, regardless of age. If you do have it, you may also be suffering with another mental health issue such as anxiety or depression. This is common with the disorder, as well as abusing substances like drugs or alcohol. If you have been experiencing symptoms for more than a month, your doctor will probably determine that you have PTSD. To make the final determination though, your doctor needs to rule out other possible factors such as a medical illness.
