Job loss/Post-traumatic stress disorder
Can job loss result in post traumatic stress disorder?
Job loss, if traumatic, could be stressful enough to serve as the trigger for the development of PTSD. If you suspect job loss has contributed to symptoms of PTSD, a psychological or psychiatric evaluation is the next step and a good investment. The sooner you treat those symptoms, the less they will progress to a major disorder.
