According to various estimates, PTSD may develop in 12-20% of people who experience or witness a traumatic event.

The number of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) diagnoses has increased in a short period of time from three thousand to almost eight thousand reported cases. Health Minister Viktor Lyashko announced this on the BBC on Thursday, June 20.

“In the first two quarters of this year, doctors recorded the same number of requests on this issue as in 2021 for the entire year,” he said.

However, the minister assumes that more people have PTSD.

“In Ukraine there is no culture of turning to a psychologist,” the official stressed.

As Victor Lyashko said, family doctors in Ukraine received recommendations to take a training course that would allow them to recognize mental health problems and help cope with them at a key stage. These courses, he said, have been completed by more than 45 thousand medical workers.

“If necessary, the doctor refers the patient to more professional psychiatric or psychological help,” he said.

So, according to the National Health Service of Ukraine (NSHU), in 2021, 3,167 patients were diagnosed with PTSD, in 2022 – 7,051 patients, in 2023 – 12,494 patients, and on March 6, 2024 – 3,292 patients.

PTSD is treatable and resolves successfully in most patients, especially if you seek medical help soon after the first symptoms appear.
