Foundation Director and secretary Renee Sapelli being interviewed by ABC Pilbara  about PTSD on PTSD Awareness day


We are the world’s leading research and educational center of excellence on PTSD and traumatic stress.

PTSD is a mental health problem that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault. It’s normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after this type of event. If symptoms last more than a few months, it may be PTSD. The good news is that there are effective treatments.



Our vision is to provide culturally competent, holistic, and wellness focused services that promote children’s social-emotional development, prevent development of mental health challenges, and address social-emotional problems that currently exist.



Our mission is to support, educate and provide services to empower families living with the challenges of mental health disorders. We do this by providing a safe place to share stories and find support for others who are dealing with mental health disorders or caring for a family member with a mental illness.
