    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

§ Mental disorders are categorized in two classification systems. At the time of this writing, the latest manual is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th Edition) (DSM-IV) published in 1994 by the American Psychiatric Association and the International Classification of Diseases [an international classification system for all medical diagnoses including mental disorders] published by the World Health Organization. The multiaxial diagnostic system was set forth in 1980 with DSM-III and is an integral part of DSM-IV. According to the DSM-IV, the multiaxial system provides a biopsychosocial approach assessment. The system ensures that information needed for treatment planning, prediction of outcome, and research is recorded. The clinician describes the patient's condition using Axes I through V of the multiaxial diagnostic system. Axes I and II of DSM-IV are utilized for multiple diagnoses. Axis I is the category for clinical mental disorders. and syndromes, and Axis II is the category for personality disorders and developmental disorders. Axis III is the category for medical, physical disorders or conditions. Axis IV is the category for psychosocial stressors encountered by the patient during the prior 12 months to evaluation. The clinician rates the individual's overall level of functioning on Axis V. See American Psychiatric Association: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 25-31 (4th ed. 1994) (Note: the American Psychiatric Association: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed. Text Revision 2000) (hereinafter DSM-IV-TR) was published in the year 2000).
