Study: Non-veterans lack resources for treatment of PTSD


vets-ptsdPROVIDENCE, R.I., Dec. 19 (UPI) — Non-veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder are less exposed to information and treatment options than combat veterans, a new study reveals.

In a report published Friday in the Harvard Review of Psychiatry, researchers from Brown University say those affected by PTSD from sexual assault, child abuse, natural disasters and other non-military incidents have limited access to helpful resources.

“There really isn’t an organized body of research that generates guidance for how [civilians affected by PTSD] and their caregivers should deal with their PTSD,” lead author Judith Bentkover said in a statement.

The study, executed by Bentkover and seven team members, also observed the limited amount of research on specific instances and groups of people with PTSD. Bentkover said the amount of research on PTSD treatment in non-veterans is limited, lacking support from a larger governing body with the ability to organize, translate and execute treatment options to more patients, like the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
