I work with many college and university faculty and staff that are concerned about the effects of combat stress and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder on their campuses and in their classrooms. ONE Freedom's presentations (1 hour-90 minute overviews on the effects stress and trauma, particularly in combat zones) has proved to be INCREDIBLY helpful in facilitating civilian perceptions and understanding of what Post Traumatic Stress actually is, and what it means. I have seen many campus administrators have an "A-Ha" moment when the ONE Freedom presenters have explained the physiological response of the body to prolonged stressors. I would recommend ONE Freedom to anyone who is wondering what "PTSD actually is", as their approach is so effective in normalizing and de-stigmatizing the effects. I have told many, many people about this great organization and the phenomenal work they are doing!
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Potentially saved hundreds or thousands of lives, and CHANGE the perception of PTSD among civilian populatins.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every six months
