AHAF was designed to creatively instill hope in those who are weary from the life’s journey.
Did you know?
• Major Depression and PTSD are products of traumatic events. They both have similar prognoses, and interact to increase distress and dysfunction. Both should be targeted by early treatment interventions and support.
Traumatic events can be any of the following:
• Death of a loved one
• Severe trauma (rape, car accident, combat related)
• Divorce / Breakup
• Developmental trauma
• Chronic disease / Addictions
• Small accidents (a scratch on a new car)
Only 29% of all persons with depression reported contacting a mental health professional in the past year, and among the subset with severe depression, only 39% reported contact.
More than 2/3 of PTSD cases go unreported, for reasons varying from fear of losing employment to outside perception.
