This test may be helpful in identifying whether you are experiencing some of the most common signs of Post Traumatic Stress. They are not intended to replace a professional diagnosis. PTSD occurs following a disturbing or traumatic event. Symptoms often show in the first few months, but for some, the signs are not experienced for several months or even years following the event.
