AboutFace is a website dedicated to improving the lives of Veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Here, Veterans can learn about PTSD, explore treatment options and, most importantly, hear real stories from other Veterans and get advice from clinicians who have treated thousands of cases of PTSD.
There are currently two sections to the site: Veterans and Clinicians. Each section has a series of statements on the left and pictures of people on the right. Click on a person to watch them talk about the highlighted subject. If what you hear works for you, you can choose to watch more of that person. Or you can go back to watch others give their answers. In the Veteran Directory, you also can search by age, gender, branch of service and place of deployment.
AboutFace is produced by the VA's National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, the world's leading center for PTSD research and education. The Center is committed to improving the well-being of American Veterans through the advancement of research, education and training in the science, diagnosis and treatment of PTSD and stress related disorders.
We truly encourage any veterans who are struggling to try this website out and see if it helps.
