This is part two of a twopart series on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In Part I, we discussed the incidence of trauma and PTSD and the importance of recognizing PTSD among the incarcerated population. In Part II, we will discuss the screening and treatment of inmates with PTSD. PTSD results in disproportionately high levels of health care utilization. It is associated with increased risk of psychiatric comorbidity, substance abuse, suicidality, and other problematic behaviors.
