Proven Treatments for PTSD

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health issue that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. After being involved in traumatic events themselves or witnessing traumatic events, it is common for most people to experience symptoms like upsetting memories, bad memories, and trouble sleeping (ptsd.va.gov). However, if the symptoms continue longer than a month or several months, a diagnosis of PTSD is possible and you would want to meet with a mental health provider for accurate assessment and diagnosis. 

Choosing who to treat with for your IOJ

When you sustain an IOJ (Injury on the Job) and you need emergency care, you should seek treatment at
any emergency facility for your immediate/urgent medical care needs.
 
For any follow-up care needed, because the City of Austin (Workers’ Compensation program) does not have
a “Network” of Doctors, you can choose to treat with any Doctor that will accept Workers Comp.
 
Do your research when choosing your Doctor and make sure he is willing to spend the time with you discussing
Treatment options.
