Today, June 27th is PTSD Awareness Day. Over half a million U.S. troops deployed since 2001 suffer from PTSD. Yet less than 20% will receive adequate care due to lack of effective treatments, fear of stigma or insufficient government resources. Half of those with PTSD won’t receive any care at all. And left untreated, veterans are at an increased risk for self-destructive behavior, including alcohol/drug abuse, depression, anxiety and suicide.
MilitaryConnection.com, one of the most comprehensive directories of resources and information for active duty military, Veterans and their families, is joining forces with the David Lynch Foundation to facilitate their fund raising efforts to provide Transcendental Meditation (TM) to those who serve, past and present.
Singer Katy Perry is one of the many celebrities who support the work of the David Lynch Foundation in bringing TM to those who suffer from trauma and stress. Via Omaze, an online site that raises funds for nonprofit organizations through online auctions, Katy is making it possible for one lucky winner to join her backstage at one of her concerts and, at the same time, help Katy help others by entering to win this one of a kind VIP experience.
Operation Warrior Wellness(OWW), a division of the David Lynch Foundation, has founded the Transcendental Meditation-based Resilient Warrior Program. This simple, easy-to-learn, evidence-based approach is relieving symptoms of PTSD and major depression, and is developing greater resilience to stress in those who are utilizing it.
