The aim of this research was to investigate whether the catastrophic fire of 2021 affected the mental health, in terms of post-traumatic stress and depression, of the social care services beneficiaries in the Municipality of Ancient Olympia in Greece. A questionnaire was used which, apart from demographic questions, contained two main tools: a) the PCL Scale (a tool for assessing post-traumatic stress), b) the Geriatric Depression Scale. The individuals with post-traumatic stress in the sample are in the range of moderate to high PTSD symptomatology. The majority of the participants are in the range of moderate PTSD symptomatology, but there is also a significant percentage who are in the range of high PTSD symptomatology. In terms of geriatric depression, the individuals in the sample are close to the mean. This article was written to serve as reference for the PTSD that can be directly caused by natural disasters.</p> Manolis Nikolaos Mentis, Eleni Mavroeidi, Konstantina Bousia, Konstantinos Mavroyiannis, Theodoros Tsokos, Georgia Konstantopoulou Copyright (c) 2024 Manolis Nikolaos Mentis, Eleni Mavroeidi, Konstantina Bousia, Konstantinos Mavroyiannis, Theodoros Tsokos, Georgia Konstantopoulou http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://journals.aijr.org/index.php/ajss/article/view/6905 Fri, 01 Mar 2024 00:00:00 +0000
