Stress promotes vulnerability to, or exacerbates symptoms of, most mental illnesses. Stress-related disorders result from an atypical response to anxiety due to physical, mental or emotional stress. Post-traumatic stress disorder can develop if feelings of fear, anger and depressed mood persist after exposure to a traumatic event. You will explore how atypical responses to trauma lead to disorders and how brain changes manifest into debilitating symptoms. For most, current treatments are not effective, so you’ll also explore emerging evidence behind novel therapies such as pharmacotherapies.
