What is PTSD?

PTSD is a disorder in which the person affected may experience fear or extreme anxiety even if there is no immediate threat present. It is developed as a result of traumatic and occasionally life-threatening experiences. PTSD greatly impacts the daily lives of affected individuals as well as their families. Due to their line of work, first responders and war veterans are more often exposed to traumatic experiences, and therefore more at risk of suffering from PTSD.

How Do We Help?

We fully believe in the healing power of nature and outdoor recreation. We partner with organizations offering veterans and first responders therapies that remedy the effects of PTSD. Our premier facilities enhance partner organizations’ ability to serve those in need. Whether fly fishing, hiking, or strumming a guitar around a fireplace, we create a rejuvenating and memorable experience for every guest. If you’re an organization or individual looking for ways you can serve first responders or veterans suffering with PTSD and feel that our mountain resort could be valuable, please feel free to contact us today and we can discuss. Helping PTSD is something we’re incredibly passionate about here at Puma Hills.
