Short debate: post traumatic stress disorder


Eluned Parrott led a debate on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in Wales on 24 April 2013.

The Liberal Democrat AM called for more work to be done to help sufferers, war veterans in particular.

She said that Wales had a big problem in the delay between diagnosis of PTSD and referral for help.

On average, sufferers in Wales wait 119 days whilst England's target is 28 days.

She also called for a residential care home for sufferers in Wales.

Health Minister Mark Drakeford thanked Ms Parrott for choosing the subject for her debate.

He confessed there was more to be done in the area but insisted that there had been improvements in the services available in recent years.
