Post traumatic stress disorder

Post traumatic stress disorder is often referred to as PTSD. It is a mental health condition that is a type of anxiety disorder. PTSD usually follows a stressful life event, such as being in combat, being assaulted, or experiencing domestic abuse. Following the incidents, the person “re-lives” the experience, may have flash-backs, nightmares, and strong, uncomfortable reactions to the event. PTSD usually disturbs ones day-to-day living, making it difficult for them to go about their normal routine. Therapy can help these people to address the situation.

Based in New York, Guardians of Rescue is an organization whose mission is to protect the well being of all animals. They provide aid to animals in distress, including facilitating foster programs, rehabilitation, assisting other rescue groups, and providing support to families, both military and no, who need assistance due to economic factors.
