Who we are.

The Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Alliance is a group of professional and advocacy organizations that have joined forces to provide educational resources to individuals diagnosed with PTSD and their loved ones; those at risk for developing PTSD; and medical, healthcare and other frontline professionals.


What is PTSD?

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder is a complex health condition that can develop in response to a traumatic experience – a life-threatening or extremely distressing situation that causes a person to feel intense fear, horror or a sense of helplessness. PTSD can cause severe problems at home or at work. Anyone can develop PTSD – men, women, children, young and old alike. Fortunately, PTSD is treatable. Learn more about PTSD.


Alliance Members

The PTSD Alliance includes four national organizations that represent a spectrum of healthcare issues related to PTSD; including trauma-related stress, women’s healthcare and anxiety disorders. Learn more about our Alliance Members.


Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation

We have noticed a close correlation between drug and alcohol abuse, and PTSD. We have listed a few websites that might interest you in getting more information or addiction help if deemed necessary.
