#PTSDChat : RESOURCES (1)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Our first RESOURCES #PTSDChat was a good start on what will I hope become a useful source of information for anybody with PTSD regardless of where they are in the world.  Happy to include information on AUTISM in here too as many of you also have a shared interest in this.

 

Please DM, Tweet or Email me with additions to this list.

Please could you send in your descriptions if you see yourself listed here – or if you’d like to not be here! – A country of coverage or countries would also be useful.  Thank you.

PLACES TO GO TO DECOMPRESS:

The range most definitely is an outlet. I found that fishing has helped quite a bit

Nurseries / Garden Centres

Teaching Children: sport, art, whatever you love – their joy is infectious and reminds us all what you were fighting for and protecting

Art Class – well … duh huh look who’s editing this!

 

 

TRIED & TESTED STRATEGIES FOR WELLNESS/FULL MENTAL HEALTH:

Many of the people I know credit having a breakthrough to the fact they ‘kept turning up’ every day despite how bad it gets

EAP is a good way to start treatment – it’s usually only 3-8 sessions, but can begin the healing process

Synergistic approach such as meds, therapy, & trauma release exercises works best. http://www.amazon.com/Workbook-Releasing-Resentment-Addiction-Trauma-ebook/dp/B00K9V775G/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8 …

I have had success in the past with a program called “heartmath”
