How can I get help/support for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)?

You may wish to consult our website’s Post-Traumatic-Stress Disorder page where you will find information on the condition, current treatments, ways to support recovery, and links to NAMI Discussion Groups that focus on topics related to PTSD.

The following resources may be particularly helpful:

  • National Center for PTSD, (802) 296-6300, is provided through the Department of Veterans Affairs offering resources to individuals, family members and providers on combat- and non-combat-related PTSD.  Information includes types of trauma, treatment options, coping mechanisms, related problems.  Their website maintains a “Find a Therapist” finder.  Additionally, they offer a Helping a Family Member Who Has PTSD page in Spanish on their website. 
  • The Sidran Institute is an international organization that helps people understand, recover from and treat traumatic stress (including PTSD), dissociative disorders, and co–occurring conditions such as addiction, self-injury, and suicidality. Their website provides educational information, resources for treatment, support and self-help, as well as publications about trauma and recovery. 
  • EMDR International Association maintains an online locator that lists providers of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, a psychotherapy treatment originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories.
  • Int’l Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, (202) 803-6332, provides information & resources on trauma and dissociation, as well as a Find a Therapist or Facility locator. 
  • America’s VetDogs, (866) 838-3647, provides service dogs (at no cost) to Veterans, active-duty service members, or first responders who are living with disability caused by PTSD.
