Veterans’ Readjustment Stress Reason Why Some Seek PTSD Treatment.

HealthDay (9/7, Preidt) reports, “The stress of readjusting to civilian life is a major reason some US. soldiers seek treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder,” according to a study published in the September issue of the journal Psychiatric Services. After surveying “National Guard soldiers with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) three months after they returned from Iraq,” researchers found that “for older soldiers with family and job responsibilities, readjustment issues related to their marriage, finances or family were associated with seeking help for PTSD more than actual symptoms of the disorder or depression.”
