That is not to suggest, however, that there were no injuries among the survivors of the day. But the injuries were predominantly psychic: wounded minds, not broken limbs. Immediately after the attacks, as Richard Harding, M.D., who led APA during this period, recounted in his presidential address last May, psychiatrists in APA district branches in New York and Washington, D.C., sprang into action. Facilities created ad hoc screening centers to identify persons suffering from acute stress reactions and exacerbations of other mental disorders and to provide support to them and to others affected by the carnage. Many psychiatrists worked long shifts with little sleep in those days of fear following the attacks. Their stories have been told in these pages and elsewhere, but their selflessness cannot be praised sufficiently.
