What Causes PTSD?

While the exact mechanism is not yet completely understood, it is believed to occur due to a processing problem in the brain, following one or more traumatic events. However, it is likely that PTSD develops when an individual goes through a horrific event that may include potential death, grievous injury or sexual assault.

The majority of mental health problems are often caused by a mixture of inherited mental health risks (some people are more susceptible to mental health problems), negative life experiences, an individual’s temperament and the biological aspects of person’s brain.
