PTSD Foundation of America

PTSD Foundation of America is a non-profit organization dedicated to mentoring to our combat veterans and their families with post traumatic stress.

We feel it is our duty as Americans to help these mighty warriors and their families adjust and find their new normal (utilizing peer-based mentoring – one on one or group).

Eligibility: Combat veteran of any era. (Depicting deployment to any combat zone no matter capacity.)
