Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and the ADA


PTSD has been discussed for centuries and there still isn’t a clear handle on how to sufficiently help patients.

You’ve heard PTSD described in many different ways. In the 1950s the American Psychiatric Association created the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders in which it listed “gross stress reaction” as a diagnosis. This was suggested for those that appeared psychologically normal but with symptoms from traumatic events. They thought that this would clear up in 6 months. What a long way they had to go yet. This white paper reviews why employers need to recognize that their employees that are dealing with PTSD may require accommodations in the workplace.
