Help Through Gaming
Are you a gamer? Second Life player?
Take a look at the DOD's T2 Virtual PTSD Experience at
. This online tool immerses the player in an interactive setting
that simulates a PTSD-causing combat experience, discusses danger
cues, triggers, and most importantly, how to begin to get better.
Not Alone started in 2008 when a group of warriors and
professionals discovered a significant gap in the governmentís
capacity to help warriors and their families come home from war.
There needed to be a confidential online community where those
warriors could congregate to help each other. It's hard to
know what normal is. Not Alone is a community of your peers
sharing stories of reclaiming their lives after war. Here,
you'll listen to others who live the war after the war. You'll
find people that get you.
