Turning Posttraumatic Stress (PTS) into Posttraumatic Growth (PTG).
The Permission to Start Dreaming Foundation provides transformative training and programs to support local veterans and first responders in the Pacific Northwest, all designed to cultivate and facilitate Posttraumatic Growth (PTG).
We know that there are pressures and trauma of experiences in their jobs that only those who serve can comprehend and are asked to endure. We understand the value of providing strength-based programs for mental, emotional, and spiritual growth.
The foundation offers hope and healing through our monthly huddles, workshops and opportunity to participate in groundbreaking and innovative training (PATHH) lending support for the lifetime journey.
Warrior PATHH is an 18-month program that begins with a 7-day intensive and immersive initiation and enables combat veterans and first responders struggling with PTSD or combat stress to transform their struggle into a deep and abiding sense of growth and strength. Warrior PATHH (Progressive and Alternative Training for Healing Heroes) delivers results that far surpass the traditional mental health system and allows combat veterans and first responders to live the great lives they deserve.
The key to overcoming challenges and adversity in ones life requires connection to others. We are committed to providing the right resources, relationships and responses as we meet our heroes right where they are in their lives. We believe in giving them permission to start dreaming about a life of purpose and passion.
