Help for PTSD sufferers

About 8 percent of all Americans suffer from some form of post-traumatic stress disorder; that number balloons to 30 percent -- nearly 1 in 3 -- of all veterans and active service personnel.

Stay Strong Nation recently formed as a nonprofit to assist military personnel with PTSD issues.

The volunteer group consists of veterans who've battled PTSD/TBI (traumatic brain injury) themselves; it produces educational literature and an inspirational CD/prayer; it is currently working on collecting postcards from Americans wanting to send warm wishes to service personnel in Afghanistan.

The group is focused on raising public awareness and on raising funds -- $20 million -- to construct a facility in Maui for a therapy based, life-changing program.

The group is also planning a comprehensive study on the effects of ProArgi9-plus, a new treatment that is cardiovascular-based without the side effects of other prescription medications.
