Switzerland seems to present a different picture with reference to PTSD prevalence rates. Probably partly as a result of being largely spared by large-scale catastrophes, compared to other countries, there are rather low PTSD prevalence rates. However, in traumatized or clinical samples, these rates amount to comparable sizes as in other countries. Generally, the empirical landscape concerning PTSD in Switzerland is rather limited. More research is needed to further clarify unsolved questions indicated within this article.
