Project Harmony Honors National PTSD Day, June 27
Project Harmony (www.ProjectHarmony.com) is honoring National PTSD Day on June 27 by sharing some information on their program, Connections. PTSD is a mental health problem that can occur after someone has been exposed to a single traumatic event or multiple traumatic events, such as sexual or physical assault, natural or man-made disaster, and war-related combat stress. Children can be exposed to a range of traumatic experiences as well. All children and adolescents deserve a healthy, happy, and safe upbringing. Project Harmony exists to provide support and help to children and adolescents who are victims of abuse and neglect, but prevention is just as important. Connections by Project Harmony helps to stop abuse and neglect before it starts.
Connections was founded on the idea that when mental health or trauma symptoms can be identified early in a child’s life, a wide range of problems can be prevented, including child maltreatment. Through Connections, Project Harmony links children and families to preventative and early intervention mental health services. Their focus is to help children get back on track developmentally, function better at home and in the classroom, and be safer at home and in the community. Project Harmony is currently working with local school districts to help identify and refer students to Connections.
