“There are many soldiers and civilians who suffer from post-traumatic stress (PTS). It is great to see the free PTSDJournal magazine resource being offered to not only them, but to their caregivers, families and friends as well. The content is not only rich and insightful, but also extremely helpful in coping and understanding this injury.”
General Peter W. Chiarelli
U.S. Army (Ret.)
“PTSD is an injury that is invisible to all except those that have endured and continue to endure the agony. PTSD Journal will be a key link raising the awareness and the scale of this injury for military service men and women and other professionals from all walks of life.”

“I think the need for a magazine such as PTSDJournal is long overdue. Too many Americans suffer from it and not enough know what to do about it beyond medication. As a long time yoga practitioner and teacher, I have used yoga and breathing techniques with Veterans to alleviate some of the symptoms.
This magazine will surely remain cutting edge on how all audiences can deal as caregivers, clients, educators with this debilitating disorder.”

“Many people do not realize that many of the people they come in contact with suffer from PTSD. PTSD Journal will highlight many forms of PTSD and offer awareness and assistance. No longer is PTSD taboo as it is a mainstream issue.”

“Untreated PTSD is a silent killer that often robs one of hope and trust, thus negating their innate ability to positively contribute to society. Too often, it leads to horrific acts of violence to include suicide. It can grow inside of one’s innermost being similar to the way cancerous cells metastasize within the human body.
Although recent military, medical, public, and political attention has been brought to light on this subject, your magazine will further serve as a beacon of information on this national malady and hopefully encourage those afflicted with PTSD to seek help in dealing with this emotionally crippling affliction. I both applaud and salute your efforts. BRAVO ZULU!”

“Throughout my many years as a Marine Corps Officer, I have personally witnessed the effects of PTSD on the military community. Having a publication like PTSD Journal will help bring this challenge to the forefront and greatly contribute in the search for a solution.”
Former Major, US Marine
“We are oftentimes interacting with family, friends, and colleagues struggling with the effects of PTSD and never recognize the impact of PTSD. Whether a combat veteran or someone impacted by a traumatic accident, we all deal with the aftermath. For some, the experience has enriched their lives, for others it has defined their lives. PTSD Journal will play a critical role in helping everyone recognize PTSD and support those who struggle.”

“Asking for help was the most difficult thing for me to do. Asking for help saved my life, Literally. For years, I carried around anger and a fear monster in my head. Drug and alcohol abuse buried that anger, pain & fear. Looking back, I was running from all my “inside pain,” in my case, family trauma events and snap-shots from my childhood. When I learned from PTSD Journal leadership that the lion share of folks living with PTS were civilians like me, I was floored and comforted as the same time. This fact also opened my eyes to how many folks like me are out there, walking around in their “own heads” with “mental pain,” and the associated crippling fear of wanting to let someone know how they feel yet holding it in. I turned a corner in my life when I addressed my fears, asked for help on more then one level, and began the process of letting my “pain” out…the energy and power of speaking with another who knows my type of pain made a life saving difference. Thank you PTSD Journal leadership for doing what you do – saving lives.”
“PTSD is a disease that is still too little known and too little understood. Americans owe a great deal to the soldiers who have fought for the country’s causes, but too many victims of PTSD are not understood or helped. PTSDJournal is fortunately bringing this problem to the public and providing help and hope to the victims. The best cure for this silent killer is to inform the public about PTSD and to help those suffering from the illness. PTSDJournal provides that much needed help.”
