PTSD research to implement Veteran Advocate Program
Organized by: Jeanna Carlton
There are THOUSANDS of Military members returning from war zones everyday in our Country! Some are physically hurt, but even more are emotionally hurt! What happens to each of them upon arriving home? Their mental and emotional state is critical to their successful integration back into society. I want to research the current state of success and develop a plan to address the gaps in our societal treatment for them; Specifically related to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Too many soldiers who fight for us come home with no one to fight for them! I want to change that! To begin to make these changes, I need to research and learn as much as possible in cities all around our nation. That requires time, travel, interviews with Soldiers and Professionals on that specific topic. Please help me raise the money it will take to accomplish this for those who risk the ultimate sacrifice for us. The end goal is to have a POC (point of contact) in each city, outside of formal government, to walk beside these soldiers, as their advocate, in ensuring their assistance back to stability! A True Hero deserves that much from us!
