Psychiatric News (11/11) reports, “More than 8% of older veterans have subthreshold posttraumatic stress disorder (clinically significant PTSD symptoms below the threshold for a diagnosis),” researchers concluded after analyzing “data from 3,001 U.S. veterans aged 60 years or older who participated in the National Health and Resilience in Veterans Study between November 2019 and March 2020.” Participants “were assessed using the PTSD Checklist for DSM-5, the Life Events Checklist for DSM-5 (for trauma exposure), and other measures.” The findings were published online Oct. 29 in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.
