Community Support and Resources for Women with PTSD
A Peacemaking Project by Jessica W.
What is the injustice we are solving?
- Women are increasingly facing domestic violence, and abuse of all forms. - Abuse sometimes starts from early childhood, and can continue to affect a developing girl's life well into adulthood. - These women and girls can experience PTSD, which can have a huge impact on their lives and wellbeing. - More resources and community support is needed for these women. The following are aims of this project: 1. Raise awareness of PTSD, and that PTSD can occur to anyone, due to any form of violence or abuse (including girls and women). 2. Provide a point of support, education, and external resources regarding living with PTSD, aimed towards women. 3. Raise funds to help fund women of low socioeconomic backgrounds, or in financial need, to access support resources where cost is a barrier.
