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) and its many maladies. The material is then disseminated and is 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
  • Assistance with homelessness
  • Self-education
  • Training programs
  • Claims preparation for individuals with PTSD and/or other military service-related concerns
AA PTSD Assn. has provided Veterans, family members of Veterans, homeless Veterans, and incarcerated Veterans, direct services such as:
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Shoes, boots
  • 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.
