PTSD, also commonly known as battle fatigue syndrome or shell shock, is a mental health condition triggered by traumatic or terrifying events, which are either witnessed or experienced. It is an anxiety disorder that may lead to feelings of intense fear, intrusive thoughts, helplessness, flashbacks and nightmares. It has been observed that rescue workers, emergency personnel and loved ones of victims tend to develop the condition often. PTSD is also highly common in war veterans and hence, it was formerly known as battle fatigue.

Although the exact cause of post traumatic stress disorder is not yet known, it is believed that a combination of different factors, such as genetic, psychological, social and physical factors, may contribute to the onset of this disorder.There is no specific cure for PTSD, treatment primarily depends on a multidimensional approach involving psychotherapeutic and pharmacological interventions.
