After a particularly traumatic occurrence that leaves the patient with profound mental anguish and long-lasting negative effects, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) typically develops. Therefore, determining the precise causes of PTSD and how it affects patients is of tremendous practical importance as well as scientific research value. This paper aims to analyze the possible factors that lead to PTSD disease and discuss the impact on the patient himself after suffering from PTSD. The results reveal that major negative events, natural and man-made disasters, physical injuries, and psychological harm are the main reasons for people to develop PTSD. PTSD has the possibility of increasing people’s criminal tendency, which will bring self-mutilation and other self-harming behaviors to patients. Additionally, it is often accompanied by many psychological and physical complications during the onset of the disease, which further damage the patient’s health. The paper provides insight into the prevention and intervention of PTSD.
