National Center for PTSD
We are the world's leading research and educational center of excellence on PTSD and traumatic stress. PTSD is a mental health problem that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault. It's normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after this type of event. If symptoms last more than a few months, it may be PTSD. The good news is that there are effective treatments.
Ohio Psychological Association
Founded in 1949, the Ohio Psychological Association (OPA) is currently the seventh largest state psychological association. OPA was the first state psychological association to have a paid staff person to direct our advocacy, marketing and educational work. The professional staff model was quickly copied around the country taking organized psychology to a new level of effectiveness and member service. OPA staff has always been a major part of our strength and success as an association. We have received national honors as the best state psychological association twice, best graduate student group twice and best diversity program once.
Postpartum Support International
Postpartum Support International (PSI) was founded in 1987 by Jane Honikman in Santa Barbara, California. The purpose of the organization is to increase awareness among public and professional communities about the emotional changes that women experience during pregnancy and postpartum. Approximately 15% of all women will experience postpartum depression following the birth of a child. Up to 10% will experience depression or anxiety during pregnancy. When the mental health of the mother is compromised, it affects the entire family.
Star Behavioral Health Providers
Whether you are a service member, veteran, military family member, referring professional or friend, military life – especially deployments or mobilizations – can present challenges that are both unique and complicated. Some of these challenges are manageable, and some of them are not. In some cases, these issues get worse and become too much. It is during these difficult times that we should seek help from qualified professionals who are trained in military-specific subjects and can address the special challenges we face as service members, veterans and military friends and families.

We understand that the human family is in crisis, and that all individuals are capable of and deserve compassion.

It is our goal to make our services accessible to the broadest reach of people across race, religion, class, culture, sexual orientation, and ethnicity.
