The Principal Mission of THE GOLDEN TOUR *Is To Increase Trauma Awareness*
And while touring, the VATIC Foundation is collecting donations to provide Educational Grants. The grants are available to individuals recovering / transitioning from PTSD, Complex-PTSD and other forms of trauma related injuries.
It's Important To Know
After surviving a traumatic event, individuals have PTSD - like symptoms. For example, obsessive thoughts and replaying the trauma in your mind. You may also experience fear, anxiety, anger, depression, or even guilt.
All are common reactions to trauma. Getting timely help and support may prevent normal stress reactions from becoming worse and developing into PTSD.
Support From The Community
The Vatic Foundation believe's in community and foremost every individual who has lived with PTSD. Our support, awareness campaign, and world tour is in place to assist our community members in understanding you don't need to turn to unhealthy coping methods. Coping methods which later in life can result in family and employment issues.
The Vatic Foundation is committed to getting trauma survivors back on your feet and realizing, 'you're not alone'.
