The NICE guideline on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) covers:

  • the care people with PTSD can expect to receive from their GP or other healthcare professional
  • the information they can expect to receive about their condition and its treatment
  • what treatment they can expect, which may include psychological therapies and drug treatment
  • the services that may help them with PTSD, including specialist mental health services.

This guideline was previously called post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): the management of PTSD in adults and children in primary and secondary care.
