Panzer, M.D., and Janet Chassman, M.B.A. Guest Editors The alarming prevalence of trauma among recipients of public mental health services has met with an explosion of clinical, public health and research interest. The ﬁeld of traumatic stress studies arose in the context of increased attention to the difﬁculties faced by returning Vietnam war veterans, crime victims, and survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse. Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) was introduced into the diagnostic nomenclature in the early 1980s, and the ﬁrst meeting of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS) was convened in 1985. Since then this organization has brought together researchers, clinicians and public health advocates interested in the social and clinical problems of trauma. Despite the classiﬁcation of PTSD, trauma-based disorders were not initially included among the assessment and research studies of individuals with serious mental illness, i.e. schizophrenia spectrum, anxiety and affective disorders. During the past decade, recipient and family advocates brought pressure on public mental health systems
