Phoenix Australia researchers have conducted a pilot study of a novel form of brain stimulation therapy for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in veterans which shows promising results.
New Australian treatment guidelines for ASD, PTSD and Complex PTSD were launched on 16 July by The Hon Greg Hunt MP, Minister for Health. Developed as 'living' Guidelines, they are a vital tool for practitioners who provide care to people affected by trauma.
Social support and connectedness is one of the strongest predictors of resilience and recovery following trauma and disaster. It is up to us as a community to manage the potential mental health and wellbeing impacts of this pandemic, to support ourselves and reach out and engage with others.
BlueHub, a specialised mental health referral, assessment and treatment services, is being developed in a collaboration between The Police Association Victoria (TPAV) and Phoenix Australia, supported by a $2.5 million Department of Health grant.
