I do. As a mental health advocate, though, I don’t like to reserve a special status for PTSD above and apart from the others. This is mainly because as I mentioned a group of ten people could be exposed to a trauma, and five are fine, two get PTSD, two get depressed, and one gets bipolar. I don’t want to say that the two who got PTSD from the trauma are categorically different from the other three. If for no other reason than it doesn’t help any of them with stigma in the end.
