Founded in November 2006 the PTSD Association of Canada (PTSD) is the first stand alone PTSD Association in North America. We are a not for profit organization that exists to help those experiencing post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), those at risk for PTSD and those who care for traumatized individuals, as well as their families, friends and fellow workers and medical community.
HELPING THOSE WHO SUFFER FROM PTSD
The good news is that PTSD is treatable. Unfortunately, many health care providers are not always able to link the symptoms with the diagnosis. Making people aware of PTSD, including individuals whose loved ones have experienced a traumatic situation, is one of the best ways to assist in an accurate diagnosis. Accurate diagnosis can lead to treatment and, eventually, healing, growth, and recovery.
To Honour the Human Spirit & Empowering Individuals to take the necessary steps that will take them from Mental Distress to Post Traumatic Growth.
