According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, more than 8 million people in the United States currently have PTSD. Posttraumatic stress disorder can develop after an individual goes through or sees a life-threatening event. PTSD, while often thought of as affecting active military and Veterans, is not limited to warfighters or first responders. Civilian survivors of sexual assault, serious accidents, natural disasters, or other traumatic events can also experience PTSD.

JKO offers various courses that touch on PTSD and the mental health of the joint force for continued education on this vital subject. These include but are not limited to:

· Joint Force Leadership - JFLD 101

· DHA - US307Clinical Practice Guideline for Mgmt. of PTSD and Acute Stress Disorder: Diagnosis and Assessment of PTSD and Acute Stress Disorder - (1 hr)

· DHA - US333 Clinical Practice Guideline for Mgmt. of PTSD and ASD: Overview of Mgmt. (1 hr)

· DHA - US334 VA DoD Clinical Practice Guidelines: Treatment of PTSD (1 hr)

For more information on accessing courses, click "create a JKO account" or "course catalog" on page 2 of the student user guide.

After a traumatic event, it is customary for an individual to think, act, and feel differently. However, if symptoms continue without lessening and disrupt daily life, it’s time to seek treatment.
