Abstract (Summary)

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is currently the number one mental health disorder faced by both veterans and active military personnel. Veterans returning from deployment are faced with numerous difficulties when assimilating back to their roles at home and in the community, including PTSD. PTSD has a major impact on both families and individuals. It is imperative that an innovative program is created for veterans with PTSD. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to implement a program that assists individuals with PTSD at the Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospital in Long Beach, California. This program uses both Transcendental Meditations and Mindfulness Meditation to both increase relaxation and decrease symptoms of PTSD. The David Lynch Foundation was chosen as the funding source. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
