PTSD is not about what you do but is about what happened to you. The same is true for many emotional disorders and art provides a vehicle for working through the issues and healing the scars from the inside out. We do not offer art therapy nor are we offering a replacement for any current therapy. We do offer the complementary opportunity to explore art and its effectiveness in recovery. There are no requirements to participate in our programs other than a desire to participate.
Our mission is wellness for those suffering from PTSD, TBI, MST, Major Depression, Substance Abuse and many other mental or emotional disorders. Homeless and Unemployment are included because they are often symptoms of mental disorders. Suicide is also a symptom and healing must take place. We are here to Help the Veterans Heal - along with family members and friends affected by the veteran’s struggles. Our programs evolve as needed to achieve our mission. No prescription required.
