#FacesOfPTSD: Trauma Survivors Step Into the Light

Survivors of childhood abuse, interpersonal violence and other various traumas are professionals at looking “normal.” Most of us have it down to an art. So it’s no surprise why people waging internal wars are not commonly recognized as the faces of PTSD. The #FacesOfPTSD campaign was created to change that.

#FacesOfPTSD is an online social media campaign that features the faces and stories of trauma survivors living with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The group leading the campaign, all women, all mothers living with PTSD, are dedicated to increasing information on the root causes of PTSD.

gaga1Lady Gaga captured the essence of the #FaceOfPTSD campaign in her Open Letter published on the Born This Way Foundation website.

Public figures like Lady Gaga, Jewel, Wentworth Miller, Abigail Breslin, and Alanis Morissette speaking about how PTSD and other mental health disorders have affected their lives has opened the door for discussion. Let’s not allow that invitation to be in vain. Let us intertwine common voices with the voices of those more recognized.
