Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder treatment U-turn

#2
PTSD cannot be diagnosed that simply IMHO. there is no set symptoms, no set time scale of any onset.

I think everyone who has been in a "war zone" is going to be affected somehow, not always PTSD.

I know a few people who display no outward signs of any type of mental health issues until years after the events, but they suffer all the same.

Setting up a dedicated PTSD clinics etc. might be viable, but who do you restrict at getting access to them?

would there be a time scale of leaving the forces?

what about civilians, too many questions that are not answered IMO.

Maybe just too difficult to set up in the 1st place, who knows.
