PTSD Peer Support Group April 16 2023

Veterans and families and loved ones of Veterans managing post-traumatic stress (PTS) are invited to attend The Highground’s PTSD Peer Support Group on Sunday, April 16 at 2pm at The Highground.

The gathering will include a guided walking tour of The Highground led by Executive Director Chris Pettis. Please wear appropriate clothes for the weather and expect a little extra coolness as it is always a little more breezy on the Park. This would be a great time for anyone who would like to attend our in-person get-together for the first time. We will meet at the Gift Shop (Timberframe) at 2pm. You are invited to bring a ziploc bag of soil from your home or other special place to put it on the Earthen Dove Effigy Mound Tribute. If the weather is too cold or rainy, we will meet at the “admin” building—an orange sign will be out at that driveway. We look forward to seeing everyone and hopefully some new faces, too.

This group is an important but casual gathering geared towards giving family and loved ones of Veterans managing PTS/PTSD a support system and tools to better understand what their Veteran is going through in their PTS journey. Veterans who come to the gathering receive the support of fellow Veterans and resources that many find helpful. Non-veterans are encouraged to attend even if their veteran does not attend with them.

For more information and to RSVP (appreciated by not mandatory), send an email to Theresa at museum@thehighground.us or call 715-743-4224.

This program is made available with support from the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs, the MDRT Foundation and the Charles E Kubly Foundation (charlesekublyfoundation.org).

The Highground is located at W7031 Ridge Rd, Neillsville WI 54456.
