The statistics on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder are surprising if you don't work in the mental health field. For example:
- 70% of adults in the U.S. have experienced some type of traumatic event at least once in their lives. That’s 223.4 million people.
- Up to 20% of these people go on to develop PTSD. As of today, that’s 31.3 million people who have struggled or are struggling with PTSD.
- An estimated 8% of Americans – that’s 24.4 million people – have PTSD at any given time.
- Of veterans returning from Afganistan 11% experience PTSD, that increased to 20% for veterans coming back from Iraq.
When we started our work, we didn't realize the scope and size of our impact. Not only among the suffers of trauma, but for mental health professionals around the world.
Here are just a few reviews:
“I thought I dealt with a lot of my issues and anxieties when I got out, but I hadn’t. Reading this book has encouraged me to get on with the recovery process in my life—to stop procrastinating, and just deal with it and move forward. It’s long overdue for me.”

“This book is amazing even if you aren’t struggling with PTSD. If you know someone who is...it gave me so much empathy that I don’t think I would have been capable of getting to on my own. It opened my eyes and...gave me the tools to cope as someone on the outside watching [PTSD] happen to someone else. You also don’t have to have a doctorate in psychology to understand this book. It’s very well done, very intelligently written and so practical.”
“[Dr. King’s] honesty is rare in this field, and it’s nice to get a vibe that you are talking to a real person—he puts his story out there very candidly. #dealwithit explains very complex concepts very simply. It has a good voice and an easy flow, which make arelatively quick read. If you are interested in dealing with your own PTSD, or just in the topic in general, I highly recommend this book.”
Our aim is not only to provide practical solutions but to Give A Voice to this ever-increasing group of people within our community and play our part in removing the stigma associated with mental illness.
