9/11's Psychological Scars Slowly Healing
Date:9/11/2008

7 years later, a 'natural recovery' is taking place, experts say

THURSDAY, Sept. 11 (HealthDay News) -- New Yorkers may be starting to heal psychologically -- as much as it is possible to heal at all -- from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, experts now say.

"There is a thing called natural recovery and, for some people, it happens quickly, and for others, it takes a long time.

Still, it's impossible to discern what is happening right now, since most studies have only looked at results four to five years after planes crashed into the towers, as well as the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field, killing almost 3,000 people.

"We are anticipating to present preliminary findings on mental health ramifications six to seven years after the attack in a few months, but it takes time to collect this information," said Lorna Thorpe, deputy commissioner for the New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene.

Most of the indirectly affected people have resolved those symptoms pretty quickly and healed."
