For several years, California has been at the forefront of PTSD treatment policy reform. In 2019, Oakland became the first city in the country to decriminalize a wide variety of treatments. “It’s time to take a health and science-oriented approach and step away from knee-jerk criminalization,” State Senator Scott Wiener tweeted on November 15, 2020.

PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) is a mental health problem that some people – soldiers and civilians – develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault.
It’s normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after this type of event. At first, it may be hard to do normal daily activities, like go to work, go to school, or spend time with people you care about, but most people start to feel better after a few weeks or months. If it’s been longer than a few months and you’re still having symptoms, you may have PTSD.
