THE STORY:

*** Institute for BioTechnology Futures is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization under EIN 27-3110078. Verify our status at http://www.irs.gov/Charities-&-Non-Profits/Exempt-Organizations-Select-Check .***

INSTITUTE FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY FUTURES PASSES 100% OF FUNDS RAISED FOR PTSDCONNECT DIRECTLY TO PTSDCONNECT. WE KEEP NO ADMINISTRATIVE OR SERVICE FEES.

More veterans die of Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD)-related suicide than die in war. Help us help them -- as well as the millions of civilians around the world who also suffer from PTSD as a result of terrorism, crime, and natural or manmade disasters.

Seven years of research has demonstrated that the main reason American and foreign veterans don't get help for PTSD is because the U.S. Department of Defense and Veterans Administration (and their foreign equivalents) require that they identify themselves when getting treatment. This can lead to stigma, lost jobs, loss of security clearances, and more. So they don't get help. They suffer in silence until they can't take the pain anymore. And then, it's a tragedy.

PTSD Connect is a web portal that is in development. It allows veterans -- and civilians -- to receive help, FREE and ANONYMOUSLY, at the moment that they need it. Using highly-secure telemedicine platforms, users of the completed project will simply log on and talk to a real human being, face-to-face or masked. And they will heal. And they will have hope to make it another day.

Many more features for the site are planned, but our most urgent need is to start helping now. Helping those who are afraid to reach out, because doing so could ruin their lives.

Please support PTSD Connect through Institute for BioTechnology Futures to complete this critical, life-saving site and provide FREE and ANONYMOUS help to our military heroes and others. By donating to us, you will save lives. Thank you!
