New research points to early warning signs for PTSD
New research suggests certain warning signs of post traumatic stress disorder can help the military prevent troops from developing PTSD.
It suggests service members who screened positive for signs of PTSD before they were deployed were five times more likely to develop it after deployment than those who did not.
Severe line-of duty injuries also increase the risk of developing PTSD.
The information appears in the Archives of General Psychiatry.
