I can not give enough praise to the Purple Mountain Institute, The Mindful Veteran Project and the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction 8 week class taught by DR. Teri Davis. I was quite the mess when I started the MSBR. DR Teri Davis was the most unbelievably wonderful instructor I have ever had. I was a bit skeptical when the first class started but with Teri instruction and way of teaching opened my mind and put me at ease immediately. I suffer from PTSD and this class has literally changed my life. I am so grateful I was guided to this class. It has given me the tools I so desperately needed to cope wit life. DR Teri Davis is simply amazing and I am so bless to have even met her. I highly recommend this class for anyone who needs help coping with anything. What a powerful class and instructor.

I just completed the Purple Mountain Institute, Mindful Veterans Project. This was an eight week MBSR evidence based program. Teri was my instructor and guided us through the entire program through classes, handouts, meditation CDs, and an all day silent retreat. This class helped reduce my blood pressure and gave me tools for the future.

I was diagnosed with PTSD and attended Teri's MBSR classes which were provided through Purple Mountain Institute. I can attest that her mindfulness classes helped reduce my stress and provided me with tools for future use. MBSR is not a cure for PTSD, but it definitely helps control and manage it. I highly recommend Teri and the Purple Mountain Institute.

Purple Mountain Institute programs are conducted off-site and they offer no medical services whatsoever. As the spouse of a disabled, retired Air Force veteran awarded the Bronze Star for his bravery, I have attended Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) classes with my husband. These classes are extremely helpful for veterans, active duty, reservists, and military family members dealing with PTSD, TBI, depression, physical pain, sexual assault, or other stressors related to combat and military life. Dr. Teri Davis, the Executive Director, works tirelessly providing free classes to her clients. I have witnessed firsthand veterans suffering from PTSD begin to breathe easier, transition back into social situations, learn to deal with recurring nightmares and painful reactions to loud noises or other sudden events similar to rocket attacks, and find peace where other medical or therapeutic treatments have failed. I urge anyone considering donating to this 501(c)3 nonprofit not to hesitate. For more information about the Mindful Veterans Project, please visit http://bit.ly/1luPcrP. The physical mailing address is 120 S. Houghton Road, Suite 138-174, Tucson, AZ 85748 and contact phone number is 520.624.7183. Thank you in advance for your support of our heroes and their families.

I have to rate this as a very poor charity. The reason is they fail to provide contact info other than a P.O. Box address. I have been searching the internet for a physical address for Purple Mountain Institute and find they do not have a physical location. How can people that need medical help get that treatment if this orgainization does not provide a location. I think they want your donated money but they do not plan to provide medical services.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

no, I haven't

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be available to the public. provide phone contact and physical address..sounds like a scam
