Your discussion on PTSD is very informative! You mentioned that the scope of this mental crisis is varied and can apply to numerous theoretical or subject cases. According to the Anxiety & Depression Association of America (ADAA), about 12 million adults have PTSD in a given year and 6 out of 100 people will have PTSD at some point in their lives. We normally associate PTSD with veterans or those who have to endure traumatic experiences like police officers or firefighters, which you mentioned in your post, however, PTSD affects children and teens as well. The ADAA reports that 15% to 43% of girls and 14% to 43% of boys have experienced at least one trauma in their life. Furthermore, of those children and teens, 3% to 15% of girls and 1% to 6% of boys develop PTSD. However, it is important to note that the symptoms for children are different than those exhibited by adults. According to the CDC (2022), PTSD in children can be confused with symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This is because children with PTSD can seem restless, fidgety, have trouble paying attention, and staying organized. What are the guidelines professionals must follow in order to determine whether a child has ADHD or is actually experiencing PTSD?
