This website was created for those experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and for their support system of family, friends and fellow workers.
The site's founder experienced a traumatic car accident which changed her life significantly. It took much personal effort to begin and travel her journey to recovery and growth. Her newfound commitment to understanding PTSD and sharing her understanding with others is the reason she created the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Association which is the sponsor of this site.
The site includes clinical information from world-renowned and extensively published medical authorities combined with real-life situations. In sum, the website will reveal the human side of a deep wound and aid in the hopeful transformation and sustaining of a new self thereafter.
