Event Details

20 veterans a day still take their own life – EVERY day. Over 600,000 suffer from traumatic stress.

The silence is killing our veterans, and others, with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Through education, dialog and understanding, we can shatter the silence.

You likely know someone who has been affected by PTSD – maybe you have lived with it yourself. The invisible psychological wounds make it harder for people to understand, but are every bit as real and debilitating as physical wounds.

This conference is your opportunity to learn, engage and help by reducing the stigma associated with PTSD. Become familiar with what PTSD is, what it is not, how it affects lives, the resources and tools available and how they can and do create real and positive change.

You must pre-register by November 10.  CEU's will be available for nurses, teachers, therapists and social workers.

This informative day will feature a resource room with materials from service providers and a wide variety of presenters, discussion groups and panels throughout the day including breakout session topics:

  • Moral injury
  • Alternative therapies
  • Unhealthy coping mechanisms
  • PTSD is not a life sentence
  • Support groups
  • PTSD and children
  • PTSD and spouses
  • PTSD and the effects of aging

Event co-sponsors:
