An estimated 5 percent of Americans—more than 13 million people—have PTSD at any given time. Those rates are highest among individauls who experienced intense or long-lasting trauma, experienced trauma earlier in life or have a job that increases exposure risk to traumatic events, such as first responders and military personnel.
