CALL-TO-ACTIONA composite from the new PSA, sponsored by Erase PTSD Now, reflecting a movement for change. In the coming months, there’s a good chance it will be aired via broadcast television in PSA spots. View the PSA in its entirety below.
From the foreword, The Invisible Machine
“A searing event changes our neuroanatomy and our neurophysiology. Fifty years ago, we could not detect these changes through routine neuroimaging. Now we can. These visible changes affect our thoughts, actions, and reactions. Post-traumatic stress symptoms are a natural, biological response, built into our DNA as a survival mechanism — one that can be turned on but not always turned off.”
~ DR. FRANK OCHBERG, M.D., a founding board member of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies and recipient of their highest honor, the Lifetime Achievement Award. He edited the first text on treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and served on the committee that defined PTSD. He was associate director of the National Institute of Mental Health and director of the Michigan Mental Health Department. At Michigan State University, he is clinical professor of psychiatry.

With great passion and determination, Dr. Eugene Lipov advocates for “PTSI” (short for post-traumatic stress injury) to replace the clinical diagnosis of PTSD, (post-traumatic stress disorder). He, along with many other leaders, within the medical community and beyond, believe that a successful change in the labeling of the condition will help remove the stigma that comes with the diagnosis — and, it will save lives in the process.
Joining Dr. Lipov and Dr. Ochberg, in this push for “PTSI”:
