Healing Resources for PTSD and Moral Injury

The following links provide resources for a better understanding of these issues and show examples of the work that people are doing to promote healing in their own communities.

I want to acknowledge that both PTSD and Moral Injury exist outside the military combat experience.
I have chosen to keep the links on this page focused on healing for our veterans.
The exceptions are the last three links:
“Ayurvedic Perspectives”
“Transforming Trauma Stored in the Body”
“Restoration & Balance”
