Government unprepared for increasing number of PTSD cases
A new report says the government isn't prepared to treat the increasing number of cases of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in veterans and active duty military personnel.
The study by the Institute of Medicine found that despite spending billions, a "lack of standards, reporting, and evaluation" has hurt government efforts.
While it does say the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs have made a commitment to PTSD management, it recommends they better coordinate with each other.
