The American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress -- This is an EXCELLENT, short outline of sexual assault and rape related PTSD symptoms and my website uses their PTSD criteria

New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault -- I don't live in New York (I've visited once) but I really connect with the social withdrawal aspect of PTSD discussed on this page.

Mayo Clinic Post Traumatic Stress Disorder -- A quick overview of signs, symptoms, and treatments, but my favorite thing about this site is that it has a section for Coping and Support that talks about "When Someone You Love Has PTSD".
