Relevance. Physical and mental health indicators play a major role in assessing patients' quality of life. The quality of life deteriorates with the development of post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD), and it directly affects patients' health.

Objective: to investigate changes in indicators of quality of life among patients with PTSD.

Materials and methods. 22 young patients participated in the study. The MOS SF-36 International Quality of Life Questionnaire and the Mississippi Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Rating Scale (civilian version) have been used.

Results. According to the results of the Mississippi Scale, the patients were divided into three groups: 1 (n=4) – without PTSD symptoms, 2 (n=13) – with mental disorders, and 3 (n=5) – with PTSD symptoms. In each of the above mentioned groups, the MOS SF-36 quality of life test has been conducted. According to its results, it was determined that group 2 had lower quality of life indicators (physical and mental health components) compared to the first group, but higher compared to the third group.

Conclusion. Manifestations of PTSD directly affect the quality of life of patients. Patients with PTSD and mental disorders reported lower indicators of physical and mental components of health.
