VA PTSD Research Study

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is an anxiety disorder that can develop after experiencing a traumatic event. It is estimated that up to 20% of Americans will experience PTSD at some point in their lifetimes. That’s 31.3 million people who have, or will be bombarded by intrusive thoughts, avoiding people, places, and things, and experience hyper awareness. They may experience nightmares, find that they are no longer close to people, and constantly feel on guard. The VA is dedicated to supporting research to help us come to a greater understanding of what PTSD really is and how to best treat it. If you recognize the signs of PTSD in yourself, friends or loved ones, we urge you to seek professional help. If you are Veteran with PTSD, consider participating in a VA medication trial that could help treat your PTSD. What we learn will help many Veterans and non-Veterans. Please call 202-745-8000 ext. 6191.
