FAQs

Welcome 

The African American Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Association was established April 3, 1999, as a derivative of an African American PTSD Therapy Group formed in 1995. ​The mission of the African American Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Association is multiple, and includes seeking materials that are dedicated to the discovery of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and their many maladies. These materials are then disseminated, and are used to promote knowledge and stimulation of public policy discussions. This material also encourages the implementation, identification, and expansion of effective programs. It provides initiatives that encourage healthy lifestyles and long-term health consequences, and provides assistance with homelessness, self-education, training programs, and claims preparation for individuals with PTSD, TBI and/or other military service related concerns.
 
The African American Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Association has provided Veterans, family members of Veterans, homeless Veterans and incarcerated Veterans, direct services (e.g. food, clothing, personal hygiene items, shoes, boots and blankets). AA PTSD Assn. has provided these services with an all-volunteer force that utilizes their own funds and minimal resources through group partnerships within each State they operate to finance and operate this very necessary program.
