Hello and hope you are doing well.

Yes, it is possible to have post traumatic stress disorder following meningitis. According to a scientific study done, 15% of children who have had meningococcal disease, (meningitis and septicaemia) and up to half of all parents suffer from symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following discharge from hospital.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
