AboutFace is a website dedicated to improving the lives of Veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Here, Veterans can learn about PTSD, explore treatment options and, most importantly, hear real stories from other Veterans and their family members and get advice from clinicians who have treated thousands of cases of PTSD.
There are three sections to the site: Veterans, Clinicians and Families. Each section has a series of statements on the left and pictures of people on the right. Click on a person to watch what they have to say. If you like what you see, there’s an option to watch more of that individual. Or you can go back and watch another person on the same topic.
You’ll also find PTSD Profiles in the top navigation bar. These are short films in which Veterans tell the stories of what caused their PTSD and what they did to get their lives back on track.
AboutFace is produced by the VA’s National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, the world’s leading center for PTSD research and education. The Center is committed to improving the well-being of American Veterans through the advancement of research, education and training in the science, diagnosis and treatment of PTSD and stress related disorders.
