THE STORY:

The mission of the Peter C. Alderman Foundation is to heal the emotional wounds of victims of terrorism and mass violence by training health care professionals and establishing clinics in post-conflict countries around the globe.
The Problem: One billion people, a sixth of the world’s population, have directly experienced torture, terrorism or mass violence through civil war, ethnic cleansing or genocide. The victims are often left with lifelong mental disabilities preventing them from working, caring for their families, and leading productive lives. Untreated, the magnitude of the problem extends into the next generation and beyond.

The Solution: The solution is to create a sustainable, culturally effective mental healthcare system. Through expert professional training of indigenous caregivers, 90% of the victims of global terrorism and mass violence suffering from traumatioc depression and PTSD can be returned to productive lives.

The Peter C. Alderman Foundation: Foundation-trained doctors and Foundation-run clinics have reached over 100,000 people suffering from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from terrorism and mass violence.
