We recently launched a new online resource to help psychologists and other mental health professionals, primary care providers, patients and families learn about evidence-based treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder. Resources for healthcare providers include the Clinical Practice Guideline for the Treatment of PTSD, recommended interventions and more. There's also information for patients and families affected by PTSD.
