PTSD and Suicide Prevention
If you have a resource to help veterans heal from PTSD or prevent suicide, please let me know.
It is incredibly hard for me to write about PTSD. So many veterans suffer, and they suffer needlessly.
My goal is to provide as many resources as possible to help veterans heal. There are so many resources available, and many of them are free. You don't have to suffer.
As a veteran who healed from CPTSD and depression, I can tell you that you can get well. It isn't easy. It can be done, and it will change your life.
The most important resource I offer is the PTSD Resources Ebook. This free report contains the best alternative methods to heal. They have been developed by doctors and veterans or endorsed by doctors. Many of these resources are available to veterans throughout the world.
This resource contains multiple free courses to help veterans deal with pain or heal from PTSD. Courses are self-paced and can be completed in just a few hours.
This is one of my favorite resources. The reason is that I find fellow veteran Ben Peterson's messages incredibly inspiring, and they have helped to strengthen me spiritually. If you are a veteran who is also a Christian, you'll find this site to be especially helpful. You can connect with other veterans and talk to someone if you need to. All you have to do is send them a message. You'll also find additional resources available.
From the site: "Recently, there have been studies that have proven what we've known to be true for a long time... that those with an active FAITH life are 7 TIMES LESS LIKELY to commit suicide, have lower rates of depression and healthier family lives. We know the secret to healing, and we're on a mission to bring that to those who need it most. "
Although this may seem like a simple solution to suicide, it works. Being reminded that you are not alone can be a potent reminder to connect with those who can help you heal and understand what you are going through. Take the pledge and the next time you're struggling, get in touch with another veteran to help you.
