A New Mental Health Listing

Many health impairments, both mental and physical, have listings in the federal regulations. Listings are a set of criteria that need that need to be met. Meeting the criteria is proven through medical records and testimony. Mental health is no exception to the requirements. However, starting January 2017, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) will have its own listing. Currently, PTSD is evaluated under the anxiety listing. But the new listing recognizes PTSD as an impairment apart from anxiety. To show that you meet the listing for PTSD, you need to show that there was exposure to actual or threatened death, serious injury or violence; that you suffer from involuntary re-experiencing of the traumatic event, like dreams or flashbacks; that you avoid reminders of the event; and that you have increased re-activity such as an exaggerated startle response.
