House Veterans' Affairs Committee PTSD Symposium

House Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairman Bob Filner, along with members of the Committee, held a post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Health Care Symposium May 16 to discuss improved ways to provide mental health care services to veterans. Mental health care providers, medical doctors and researchers discussed how families, school systems, business owners, law enforcement and the community are affected and what every American should know about PTSD. Saul Rosenberg, PhD, a clinical and forensic psychologist at UCSF and the San Francisco VA Medical Center, and an expert in psychological testing, psychometric testing and psycho-diagnostics, testified before the House Committee on Veteran's Affairs on the importance of early screening and treatment for PTSD and other mental health problems in returning vets.
