How Do Art Therapy Programs Help Our Veterans?
We know that almost 11% of NH’s population has served in the military. But less than a quarter of that population is engaging with the VA. We know that too many of our Veterans are suffering from PTS, PTSD and traumatic brain injuries. We also know that art therapy programs can be very helpful to address those issues, but we can’t find any art therapy programs in NH. So we have started a collaboration to launch them ourselves. There is well documented research of how art therapy programs address critical symptoms that enable a process of recovery from traumatic experiences.
