Allen we all believe in you, and we think therapy will really change your life. Please give it a try
I hate seeing you all so worried
I don't know how it'll help but okay
Later that week
Dr. Menoni specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This is a common treatment for PTSD, and although it can't be fully cured, CBT helps patients deal with their trauma.
Hey Allen, I'm Dr. Menoni! I'll be helping you out for a while
It started on a Monday morning in Afghanistan...2009...
Remember, you don't want to get consumed by the memories and feel like you're reliving them. We'll use tactile stimulation to keep you in the present
Ok, so talk to me. What happened?
A year later
Thank you so much for all your help Dr. Menoni. I don't know where I would be without you.
Well Allen, your time with me is over. I'm thrilled to say that you have your PTSD under control.
I'm quite proud of you
Thanks to all the help he received from his friends, therapy, and the Department of Veterans Affairs, Allen's life has taken a dramatic turn.
He has a job, a new apartment, and adopted a dog.
Unfortunately, not everyone who goes through what Allen went through has a happy ending. Many veterans fall into poverty and/or become homeless. These men and women risk their lives to protect people like us, and they don't always get thanked for it. Your donation will make a difference-The End-
