The New York Post had an article this morning describing the results of a Journal of the American Medical Association study showing a jump to 19 percent from 14 percent of people suffering from post traumatic stress now than immediately after the 9/11 attacks. In addition, the study concluded that "it turned out that there were significant correlations between soldiers "with high levels of horrific experiences" and those caught up in the chilling saga of 9/11."
What does all this mean?
"Following future disasters, we [the AMA] recommend short- and long-term interventions, including immediate outreach, screening and evidence-based treatments," the study concluded.
