Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Six signs of stress you shouldn't ignore

The Primary Care Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Screen for DSM-5 (PC-PTSD-5) is a 5-item screen designed to identify if you have probable PTSD. By completing a series of brief questions assessing your history of traumatic experiences and symptoms of PTSD, you can gain significant information about the likelihood and severity of your PTSD symptoms. Screening positive requires further assessment, preferably with a structured interview.

Take the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Questionnaire

Online screening is the quickest and easiest way to check the severity of your trauma symptoms and help you decide whether you should reach out to a professional for help. Your response to this screening tool is anonymous. Your score and additional resources will be shared with you after you click “See my Score.”

Sometimes things happen to people that are unusually or especially frightening, horrible, or traumatic. For example, the current global health pandemic (COVID-19).

Other examples include:

  • A serious accident or fire
  • A physical or sexual assault or abuse
  • An earthquake or flood
  • A war
  • Seeing someone be killed or seriously injured
  • Having a loved one die through homicide or suicide
