Picking Up The Peaces
Strategic Plan 2009-2013
One point four million Australians at any one time have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
It affects people from all walks of life. Families are torn apart, drug and alcohol problems occur, careers are destroyed, and in some cases, people are driven to suicide as a way of stopping the pain.
Picking Up The Peaces for PTSD is a community group committed to a National Campaign to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of PTSD, and how by seeking treatment early, sufferers and their families can regain some quality of life.
Our message is that early detection and early treatment can save years of anguish for people living with PTSD.
Picking Up The Peaces mission is to raise awareness of the disorder so that those suffering, their families, friends and workmates can detect and identify it early. By collaborating with treating professionals and high-risk environment employers, a network of effective referral and systematic procedures can rehabilitate, support and destigmatise the individuals involved.
