About Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (commonly known as PTSD) is a common occurrence in people with combat experience. It can result directly from involvement with the traumatic event itself, and also frequently results from observing another person undergo a traumatic situation.

We are specifically seeking volunteers with military service defined as active military or veteran, reservist, military contractor, Department of Homeland Security, Secret Service, Intelligence Agency, or law enforcement officers.

PTSD manifests itself in several ways. There is often a recurrence of the event in the form of a distressing memory. Day-to-day functioning may seem difficult. People with PTSD often feel transient states of anxiety.
