Disability Support Service For PSTD

Posted June 1, 2018 by enhanced2017

The Australian government provides disability support services to more than 460000 Australians under the age of 65. Post-traumatic stress disorder needs the same care and treatment as any other disability.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD is an anxiety disorder that recurs with resurfacing of memory related to a traumatic event. Any individuals can develop this condition when an incident experienced by him creates an intense fear of feeling helpless. Though this condition is mostly seen in military veterans, anyone can develop this disability having experienced intense trauma previously.

In Australia, disability support services take care of all such individuals who are facing disability in their life due to having experienced severe incident in the past. In case, anyone who is suffering from PTSD is eligible for the disability benefits.

[b]Signs And Symptoms Of PTSD[/b]
An individual can be affected by PTSD as a survivor of a traumatic event. The traumatic incidents might include experiencing abuse, violence or surviving a severe natural disaster. There is not just one incident that can bring PTSD. They are different for every single individual.
Problems arising due to PTSD include,

• Depression
• Alcohol abuse
• Eating disorders
• Suicidal thoughts
• Addiction to drugs

Symptoms of PTSD are not consistent as they come and go. Most of the symptoms resurface during the time of stress or when the memory of that traumatic experience is triggered somehow. If you know someone who is suffering from PTSD, it is important to consult a medical professional for diagnosis and hire personal care provider for support and treatment.
Common Symptoms of PTSD includes;

• Dreams of the events that is upsetting
• Flashbacks of traumatic experience
• Trying to avoid talking or thinking of the event
• Having difficulty in concentrating
• Hallucinations, auditory or visually
• Having trouble in sleeping

If you are not capable of working due to PTSD, you may be entitled to disability benefits. The benefits include Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). You can also take help of a medical professional about the condition and determine whether you have PTSD or not.
