PTSD is a disorder that usually results after experiencing a traumatic event in which a person feels they are in great danger.  People can directly experience the event, be a witness to the event, learn of the event (without actually witnessing it), or, in the case of emergency responders, continually be faced with traumatic events.  It is important to seek therapeutic treatment for PTSD, as this disorder can severely affect a person's ability to function.  PTSD is commonly diagnosed alongside mood disorders (depression, bipolar disorder), anxiety, and substance use.

Crisis Prevention and Intervention
A mental health crisis could be considered a situation in which someone feels that they are losing control of themselves, and are considering harming themselves or others.  It is important to know how to respond in these situations.  

Mobile Crisis is a mental health crisis response team that will travel to where an individual is, in order to help them work through the crisis.
