New Brochure
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

New, updated brochure released June 2011.

"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."
