PSD on the Rise

Our clinical department assesses and treats for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other stress-related anxiety disorders. These conditions may result from myriad stressful or life threatening events, such as – sexual assault, domestic violence, experiencing a violent crime, combat stress, and acute financial or medical problems. The event may have also happened years ago, and the symptoms are coming forward due to other life stressors. Our clinical department has a licensed therapist available to speak to individuals in crisis and assess their symptoms upon walking into our Center, Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm. This is not happening anywhere else in New Mexico. Because of this ease of access, our total assessments increased by 36% last fiscal year, and our billable hours increased 19% with 1 less therapist.
