---|---|---|
t = 0 |
Potentially Traumatic Experience n individuals take the online self-evaluation test. Costs: n·IDC _{0}(A _{1}) |
Potentially Traumatic Experience No one takes the test. Costs = 0 |

Proportion π need therapy. Costs: n·π·STC _{1}(A _{1}) (1-π) are not ill and do not need therapy. |
Proportion π need therapy. Costs: n·π·LTC _{1}(A _{2}) (1-π) are not ill and do not need therapy. |
Resulting total costs: n\cdot ID{C}_{0}({A}_{1})+\frac{n\cdot \pi \cdot ST{C}_{1}({A}_{1})}{(1+i)} |
Resulting total costs: \frac{n\cdot \pi \cdot LT{C}_{1}({A}_{2})}{(1+i)} |
