Symptoms usually begin early, within 3 months of the traumatic incident, but sometimes they begin years afterward. Symptoms must last more than a month and be severe enough to interfere with relationships or work to be considered PTSD. The course of the illness varies. Some people recover within 6 months, while others have symptoms that last much longer. In some people, the condition becomes chronic.

PTSD affects the well-being of millions of people around the world. It is only once you know that you have a problem, that you can take some concrete actions to fix it and get well.

Do you have symptoms of PTSD and Trauma that you are unaware of? And are PTSD symptoms making a mess of your day-to-day life and happiness?

This test is based on a Trauma and PTSD self-assessment test from the American Psychiatric Association.

The purpose of this test is to help you gauge how many (or for that matter how few) PTSD symptoms you are have and also to offer some basic suggestions on how to get some treatment if it’s appropriate.

Let’s get started. Answer Yes or No to the following questions. Test time is 3 minutes.
