Does someone suffer from PTSD?

There's a category for anxiety attacks, but for me PTSD functions differently. It may seem redundant, but as someone with PTSD, watching someone suffer from PTSD and exhibit symptoms can actually trigger my PTSD. I imagine some other people must feel similarly. Movies would fall into this category if a character talks about having Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or becomes triggered.

A lot of the characters have lived through very traumatic experiences and it clearly affects them, but the actual disorder of PTSD is never mentioned.

Not explicitly stated, but seems to be likely as Blackbeard has a flashback and a panic attack upon seeing the fake Kraken in “The Art of Fuckery”.

LITERALLY ALL OF THEM. especially tommy though due to basically everything that ever happened to his character. you could also say ranboo has it too but most of the characters probably have PTSD just because of the things they’ve gone through in the plotline

Martha suffered from PTSD, Linh suffers from flashbacks of a traumatic event, and a lot of the show is also interviews with the teens after the island which may insinuate PTSD

Character has several flashbacks and anxiety attacks over mentions of their deceased parents. Character also hallucinates their dead sister for a brief moment. Not sure if this counts, but be wary.

no clear diagnoses, but multiple characters are deeply affected by trauma, and may be seen as having ptsd/c-ptsd

Not firmly stated to be PTSD, but there are some characters that show clear signs of being traumatized; Stan and Ford are two prominent examples.

Owen Hunt has a lot of story arcs about his PTSD from being an army medic. Being triggered results in him strangling a loved one. PTSD comes up for others as well.

A few characters certainly suffer from PTSD and when returning from missions multiple soldiers look traumatized from what they've seen.

After escaping an abusive situation and nearly losing his life in the process, one teenage character suffers a triggering event when he sees an image of his abuser later on. This happens in S2E18: Labyrinth Runners. It's also implied that the main protagonist is starting to develop PTSD, or perhaps already has a form of it after losing her father suddenly at a young age.

It's pretty strongly implied that Bucky has some form of PTSD, though this is generally made more clear in later installments.

In "All In," the Plantars' trauma from the herons that killed Sprig and Polly's parents is explicitly discussed as such. It's possible that the main trio have PTSD as well, but this is at the most only slightly hinted at in the show, like Anne remembering the events of "Reunion" during "Handy Anne."
