Report From Support Group P-T-S-D United
Almost 25-million people in the U-S are living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, according to the support group P-T-S-D United. That includes thousands of Hoosiers who have suffered a traumatic event, from crimes or natural disasters to events surrounding military service. Dr. Matthew Friedman – senior adviser at the Veterans Administration’s National Center for P-T-S-D – says the diagnosis is only part of seeking help. Friedman says treatment has advanced to include cognitive behavior therapy and medications that can help people work through their illness.
