Eight years after the September 11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, many people in close proximity to the tragedy continue to experience sometimes grave psychological and emotional problems, a new study reveals.


PR9.NET November 05, 2009 - New York, NY - Eight years after the September 11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, many people in close proximity to the tragedy continue to experience sometimes grave psychological and emotional problems, a new study reveals.

According to the 2009 9/11 Health Report, the number of victims who have developed post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depressive symptoms related to their 9/11 exposure and its aftermath has almost doubled. And that number is expected to continue to rise.

Psychologists describe PTSD as a debilitating psychological condition that is caused generally by a major traumatic and stressful event.

"The September 11 terrorist attack was one of the most tragic and devastating moments in American history, and it's obvious that the of number 9/11 victims psychologically impacted by the destruction is in the tens of thousands," says Steven M. Centore, author of One of Them: A First Responder's Story.

Mr. Centore, a 9/11 first responder, a federal employee and a Navy veteran, details his own battles with medical insurance companies and the federal government in his book—battles that have made his many 9/11-related health problems all the more painful to deal with.

PTSD is a very disruptive disorder that can create family and work problems, and in some cases it can lead to drug and alcohol abuse. The common PTSD symptoms are:

• Fear and anxiety
• Nightmares and flashbacks
• Anger and irritability
• Guilt
• Depression

According to Psychology Today, PTSD treatment progresses at a slow rate and requires a sensitive and structured program delivered by a trauma specialist.

"Studies and reports conclusively show that along with medical help, the 9/11 victims need psychological support services not usually covered by insurance plans, which means long-term government funding," says Mr. Centore. "Hopefully the US government will take the reports seriously and will provide the necessary help to those who put their own health and lives on the line when the nation needed them."
