UNDERSTANDING POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER: Explaining Symptoms of PTSD



I’m back with the DSM 5 and I’m going to be explaining mental disorders. Today, we are focused on understanding Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I discuss briefly who can get PTSD, before diving in and explaining symptoms of PTSD. By the end of the video, it is my hope that you will be able to answer “How does PTSD affect people?” and “What does PTSD feel like?” Getting diagnosed with PTSD, or watching a loved one with this disorder, can be so difficult, but there is help out there. If you think you may be experiencing symptoms of PTSD, please reach out to a local mental health professional.

Hey everyone, I’m Devin! I currently have my Associates and Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology. Before the pandemic, I was working towards my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. That was put on hold because I have an autoimmune disease (Ulcerative Colitis) that has caused me to be in quarantine for over 8 months at this point. I also have multiple mental illnesses (Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Dependent Personality Disorder) that I have been dealing with for most of my life. I post videos about living with chronic physical and mental illnesses, using both my personal experiences and my educational background in the mental health field. My contact links are included below if anyone would like to reach out! 💙
