PTS Resources

One of the most difficult things my family and I have had to deal with in order to get myself help for PTS was trying to find information on things as simple as PTS Peer Support Groups in my area, Therapist who specialize in PTS Treatment, PTS Treatment Facilities, Resources for Military, First Responders, Correctional Centre Officers, Nurses, Health Care Workers, Dispatchers, and Documentaries/Books/Social Media sources that focus on PTS.  I know first hand how frustrating it can be trying to track down and sift through the thousands of different forms of media surrounding the topic of PTS including Causes, Symptoms, Treatments etc. I have added this Resources page in the hopes it will help point others in the right direction so that we can take this journey of living with PTS together.

The founder of this Organization is my hero. Thank You LAURA SZARKA 🙂

Code 15 Project was founded with one simple goal: helping first responders dealing with psychological injuries. Code 15 Project is a hub for mental health resources, a fundraiser for these resources, and a group support system to show you that you are not alone. You’re more than a uniform, and it’s time to reclaim your life.


Heroic Hearts Project (HHP) is a registered 501(c)(3) non profit that connects military veterans struggling with mental trauma to ayahuasca therapy retreats.  These veterans typically have tried all the available resources offered by the Department of Veteran Affairs with limited success leaving them with very few options.  We open the door to other viable options.  HHP also provides support and professional counseling to these veterans throughout the process.

Our mission is to provide hope and healing to military veterans that have been left hopeless by the current Veteran Affairs system.  We seek to spread awareness in the veteran community of powerful plant based therapies like ayahuasca and end the excessive dependence on powerful medications to treat mental traumas.

Save A Warrior. Save A Warrior™ has changed countless lives through our “War Detox” program, which supports the healing from Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS). We specialize in connecting Active Duty Military, Returning Veterans, and First Responders experiencing psychological trauma.
