Quiz: Dispelling the myths about PTSD

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects as many as 5.2 million Americans each year. PTSD is considered an anxiety disorder, and all anxiety disorders combined affect 40 million Americans each year. Depressive disorders affect 20.9 million Americans each year as well. This is the statistical face of mental illness in America.


Hmmm. Interesting. I learnt some things too. Most people I know with PTSD do have depression though, so that confused me.
I was impressed with the open mindedness of the last question..


Braveheart, was the last question that you are talking about the one about which type of therapy works best? If not, what was the last question?

I too got confused on the first question about depression which was one of the two that I got wrong.


Yes that was one of the questions that had me confused as well but like you said it was good to see the openness of the options available.

In my opinion, a great quiz for people that really have no idea what PTSD is.
