Elfriede Dietrich Foundation

Strong and battle-tested soldiers who were stationed in Afghanistan who could  no longer get along with  their daily lives.

A young positive woman with a large circle of friends withdrew from society and cannot manage her life any longer.

A  lively boy, six years old – a real daredevil-  comes back from school one day completely changed. He doesn’t wish to speak to anyone.

What happened to them?

They experienced one or multiple traumas and are suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

It can happen to everybody: men, women, children, young and old. It can be triggered by an accident, physical or psychological  cruelty, war, torture or due to a loss of a person.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a disease that can be cured by special therapy and there is no reason to hide or to feel ashamed.
