PTSD UK to be a stakeholder in creation of new healthcare guidelines

At PTSD UK, we do many things to help support people affected by PTSD and C-PTSD, but we’re always striving to make a real, actionable and tangible difference on a wider scale. We want to get the support in place, before we’re even needed!

We’re so proud that we’ve been selected to be a stakeholder organisation in the creation of the new NICE guidelines for the follow topics next year.
 
  • Rehabilitation after traumatic injury
  • Social, emotional and mental wellbeing in primary and secondary education
  • Mental wellbeing at work
  • Self harm: assessment, management and preventing recurrence
  • Integrated health and social care for people experiencing homelessness
 
NICE Guidelines are evidence-based recommendations which help health and social care professionals (including NHS staff) to, prevent ill health, promote and protect good health, improve the quality of care and services, and adapt and provide health and social care services.
 
Being part of the creation of these guidelines for these topics is hugely important. We’ll be able to recommend better provision of services, faster access to support, early interventions, and make suggestions of how services could be better delivered to support people with PTSD (in the context of the topics).
 
We previously advised on the specific Post Traumatic Stress Disorder guidelines (updated in 2018) and felt we were able to make substantial, insightful recommendations, and positively impact the guidelines that were ultimately created.
 
We know there is a long way to go before services and treatment access is perfect for people with PTSD, and we’re committed to making that change happen – but this is a step in the right direction.

Treatments for PTSD

It is possible for PTSD to be successfully treated many years after the traumatic event occurred, which means it is never too late to seek help. For some, the first step may be watchful waiting, then exploring therapeutic options such as individual or group therapy – but the main treatment options in the UK are psychological treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Traumatic events can be very difficult to come to terms with, but confronting and understanding your feelings and seeking professional help is often the only way of effectively treating PTSD. You can find out more in the links below, or here.
