Understanding Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Recovery

For Veterans Day, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI has released a new 14-page brochure on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), its treatment and recovery.

"Over a lifetime, approximately 5 percent of men and 10 percent of women are diagnosed with PTSD," said NAMI medical director Ken Duckworth, M.D.  "Risk factors include the type of trauma, degree of exposure and any prior history of trauma.  In most cases, there is a direct physical impact.  Proximity in witnessing violent, life-threatening events also makes a difference."
