August 31, 2018: Please support VIBS through the 22 PTSD Awareness Challenge. The 22PAC is a 22 mile cross-sound kayak event. The event starts in Bridgeport, CT, and ends in Port Jefferson, NY. The goal is to increase awareness for the 22 veterans who die by suicide everyday, and for people living with PTSD. After the challenge, there will be free food and family fun – and information about resources available from different agencies. VIBS offers specialized trauma counseling for veterans, living with MST and PTSD, as well as for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and rape who are living with PTSD.
