T h e V i v a S t a n d i n g F o u n d a t i o n was founded on the idea of everyday communities needing a hand up not a hand out. We believe the following:
There is no panacea, or cure-all, for overcoming the effects of trauma, also known as PTSD.
Trauma not only can happen to anyone, it does happen to everyone.
Our current methods of supporting those afflicted with PTSD are outdated.
Trauma is not something to hide in the closet and wish it did not happen.
Love for and acceptance of one's experiences is possible, no matter how shocking, daunting or traumatizing they are at the present moment.
