The Hero's journey symposium

The Hero’s Journey Symposium focuses on the untold challenges faced by those suffering from PTSD and TBI, including behavioral issues and addiction, within a framework of exploring ways to create better pathways for recovery.  The day and a half Symposium’s mission is to educate and facilitate conversations to create collaborative opportunities to creative solutions.  In order to meet these objectives, the Symposium envisions a forum for PTSD/TBI sufferers and their families to interact and work with policy makers, influencers, the tech community, researchers, academics, U.S. and non-U.S. governmental and military representatives.


The hero's journey gala

The Hero’s Journey Gala will be held at Arena Stage, and will feature an exhibition and live auction of works by Veteran Artists. Proceeds from the Hero’s Journey Gala will be used for program-specific grants to selected organizations at the forefront of advocacy and research on PTSD and TBI issues relating to veterans.
