Estate planning and post-traumatic stress disorder

On Behalf of | May 18, 2019 | Estate Planning |

Those who struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may face many challenges in daily life. Whether someone has difficulty in the workplace or in their personal relationships, PTSD can be very difficult to deal with. Moreover, this can carry over into other facets of one life. For example, someone may have high levels of anxiety and be hesitant to set up an estate plan even though doing so would be in their best interests. Fortunately, creating an estate plan may be helpful for some people who struggle with PTSD and other mental health challenges by creating a sense of security.

People develop PTSD for all sorts of reasons, whether they were involved in combat or a devastating traffic accident. Everyone has a different experience when it comes to dealing with PTSD and people who are in this position should do everything in their power to manage the challenges associated with PTSD properly. There are many other ways to work on progressing, such as finding a new hobby or reaching out to a counselor. However, setting up an estate plan may also be helpful for people who are going through these hardships.

With an estate plan secured, someone who has PTSD may feel relieved knowing that their estate will be taken care of in the event they pass away, which can happen unexpectedly at any age. Setting up an estate plan can be very beneficial for anyone from an emotional point of view and people should make sure they review all of their options.
