Description

From Science to Treatment: Potential Training for PTSD, using data collected from Israeli and US Combat veterans.

Join Dr. Reut Naim-Aricha, Post-Doctoral Fellow, from the National Institute of Mental Health for a night of conversation.

10-20% of the Israeli and American veterans are suffering from PTSD. What are the contributing factors? What are the potential solutions to lessen the number across the board, and for others suffering from this condition?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

Most people who go through traumatic events may have temporary difficulty adjusting and coping, but with time and good self-care, they usually get better. If the symptoms get worse, last for months or even years, and interfere with your day-to-day functioning, you may have PTSD.

Getting effective treatment after PTSD symptoms develop can be critical to reduce symptoms and improve function.
