Depression and post-traumatic stress disorder related to the Sept. 11 attacks afflict 13 percent of students at two New York Jewish high schools, a new report says. The survey, undertaken by the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services, found that 120 students from the schools fell into a risk category, 66 of whom were classified as high risk for trauma, according to a report in the New York Jewish Week. Teachers will be trained in how to identify and respond to students at risk of trauma, the study’s organizers said.
