LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Journalists who cover the military and post-traumatic stress disorder are getting help from a new website launched by the University of Kansas.

The William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications is creating the website in conjunction with a workshop taking place Nov. 16 at the National Press Club in Washington. The workshop is designed to help journalists improve their coverage of post-traumatic stress and related illnesses.

Associate professor of journalism Barbara Barnett says the website is a place for journalists to share ideas and experiences. She says it also will help journalists cope with their own stress issues related to covering war.
