Published by CREW
On April 17, 2009 Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the Department of the Army, seeking records related to guidance given to army staff and contractors regarding the diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). CREW seeks these records to raise public awareness about the process behind the diagnosis of PTSD and the pressure being placed on doctors to diagnose related anxiety disorders as a cost-cutting measure. The request was filed after Salon.com obtained a June 2008 taped conversation between an Army staff sergeant and an Army psychologist, in which the psychologist revealed he had been pressured not to diagnose PTSD. On July 31, 2009, CREW filed a lawsuit against the Army, CREW v. Dep't of the Army, challenging the Army's failure to produce records in response to CREW's FOIA request seeking documentation of Army guidance that discourages diagnoses of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The Veterans Affairs has issued similar guidance that CREW also is seeking to document through a FOIA request that is also the subject of pending litigation.
