The application of creative and expressive therapies as part of treatment plans for PTSD has recently shown significant and sustained benefit at leading institutions such as Walter Reed Army Medical Center, the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, and various VA institutions across the country.
Artopia Chicago and Chicago Veterans are committed to extending the impact of this field work by bringing greater awareness to how art and creative engagement powerfully influences the overall healing of PTSD while connecting people with helpful resources.
