WE CAN'T ALTER LIFE THREATENING EVENTS BUT WE CAN ALTER HOW THEY AFFECT THE QUALITY OF OUR LIFE

This self help group will allow you to join others in learning about PTSI/PTSD and how to manage our new lives. We promise at each meeting we will learn a new coping skill to help manage the effects of trauma.

This is not a therapy group; it is not a place for us to 'tell our stories'.  It is a place for us to learn skills from one another, and to meet and speak with other survivors who've been there, who 'get it', and who are actively working to move beyond their trauma, forward into healthy lives.

.                    Please read this page before applying to our group.


We're 410 Trauma Survivors
