Your Results:

Your responses are mildly consistent with PTSD.

People who've scored similarly to you on this quiz for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often qualify for the diagnosis of PTSD. When symptoms of PTSD are this severe, they tend to impact a person's everyday life, making normal activities -- like work or school -- a real hardship. Keeping one's focus and concentration on the task at hand can be a real challenge for people who've scored similarly to this.

Screening quizzes are not diagnostic tests, nor can they provide you with a diagnosis. The only person who can provide you with a diagnosis is a physician, psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health care professional. It is generally not beneficial for you to identify a diagnosis ahead of time, and then go to a doctor telling them you believe you have that diagnosis. Instead, we encourage you to identify symptoms of concern to your doctor that are having a significant impact in your daily life. A valid and reliable diagnosis can only be made in partnership with your doctor or mental health professional.

We believe in the importance of screening quizzes because they help in the effort to reduce the stigma, prejudice and discrimination people who have mental health concerns often suffer in silence, because others believe their symptoms aren’t “real.” Mental disorders are real and screening quizzes help identify serious, life-changing symptoms of concern in people who might not otherwise consult with a mental health professional.
