PTSD Awareness Wall

In memory of soldiers everywhere who have fallen to hidden wounds

0 %

Only 1 in 2 veterans will choose to seek therapy. Half of those left untreated will be crippled by their PTSD. But of those who are treated, 50% say they have received “minimally adequate” treatment.

 

Don’t let your case become apart of the statistic, you are not alone.

Raising awareness and honoring soldiers

Each of these ribbons represents a life lost to PTSD. Teal for PTSD, and purple for the Purple Heart each soldier deserves. For every ribbon there are family and friends hurt by PTSD… parents who have buried a child, a child with one less parent, a widow, a sibling, a friend.
