There are many types of treatment for PTSD. You and your health care provider (e.g. family doctor, psychologist, etc.) will discuss the best treatment for you. You may have to try a number of treatments before you find one that works for you.
A type of counselling called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and medicines are known as SSRIs appear to be the most effective treatments for PTSD. Treatment can help you feel more in control of your emotions and result in fewer symptoms, but you may still have some bad memories.
