As we look back today, on the anniversary of the tragic July 7 bombings, Professor Neil Greenberg has written an article for the Huffington Post on post-traumatic stress disorder.
He explains how post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health disorder which affects a minority of people who are exposed to traumatic events such as 7/7.
He said: “It's worth pointing out that the majority of people exposed to traumatic events experience some short-term distress which resolves without the need for professional intervention although unfortunately the small proportion who do develop the disorder are unlikely to seek help."
Professor Greenberg also talks about how contrary to the usual portrayal of PTSD by the media, in many cases it is a treatable condition.
