Post - Traumatic Stress Disorder: Part Two

PTSD Part Two - Diagnosing PTSD

Visiting Your GP


Post Traumatic stress disorder treatments need to be amended to fit the patient’s needs. This means that when visiting the GP to discuss treatment, their GP will have to do an assessment to see exactly how the PTSD affects them (as well as making sure that PTSD is the most likely diagnosis). However, a referral to a mental health professional will be necessary for further treatment of PTSD, for example a psychologist, psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse.
