Serving Victims of Trauma Through Biopsychology
Recent research on the immune system indicates a path to resiliency
PARTICIPATE IN THE RESEARCH
As we expand our research we need your help. And participating is as simple as a pin prick, some saliva and filling out an anonymous survey.
If you live in the Huntsville, Alabama area we will contact you when the next collection event is scheduled. If you live elsewhere, we are perfecting kits to mail out that you can do in the comfort of your own home.
The promise of hope through biopsychology
Contributions are 100% tax-deductible and will directly to support our goals of prevention, treatment, outreach and policy through our approach to post-traumatic stress. Join us and together we can make a world of difference.
Research, Prevent and Treat
Approaching PTSD from the perspective of the immune system changes everything. This means prediction, screening and the development of new treatment options may now be possible.
As we learn more, we can help more. Compressing the timeline between basic scientific discovery and the point of need means offering insights, support and options to those who suffer at the hands of traumatic stress.
Defining Post Traumatic Stress as not only a mental health issue but an immunological one redefines how it can be approached by our health care system. We intend to support and advocate for sound policy in government and industry to ensure victims of trauma receive the support they need.
