22-Mile PTSD Awareness Challenge

 

On August 30, 2019, veterans will kayak 22 miles across the Long Island Sound from Bridgeport, CT to Port Jefferson, NY to raise awareness about PTSD and funds for programs that serve veterans. VIBS is proud to be one of the beneficiaries of the 22 PAC event again this year.

3:00 PM – 7:00 PM at the Port Jefferson Recreation Center, 101 East Broadway, Port Jefferson, NY 11777

Currently, 22 veterans die by suicide every day in the United States. The goal of VIBS Veterans Program is to reduce the number of veteran suicides by providing counseling and necessary services to veterans living with Military Sexual Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Through our specialized counseling program, we also provide PTSD services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. VIBS counselors are trauma-informed and know how to work with veterans who have experienced trauma due to difficult events.
