Why do we sell PTSD Wristbands? 

We decided to create PTSD wristbands because we could not find any on sale for a reasonable price. Many charities for veterans produce their own wristbands but these usually just contain the name of the charity and do not mention PTSD. At present, there is international charity just to support people with PTSD - options are limited to wristbands for charities who support abuse survivors or injured military veterans, or the generic dark teal wristbands also used for other causes like Ovarian Cancer and Sexual Assault/Sexual Violence.  

 

Teal Ribbon Lapel Pins

These are easily found on other websites and compliment the wristbands.

Dog tag style keyrings are also available.

Grounding Cards for Flashbacks

These flashback grounding cards are are suitable for therapists as well as people dealing with trauma symptoms. They describe different techniques for coping with - or escaping from - flashbacks. This colorful set of cards can help you learn different grounding techniques, which may helpe you gain a greater sense of control over your flashbacks. 

 

Flashbacks are a hallmark symptom of PTSD and involve a sense of re-living a traumatic experience from the past. This is both distressing and disorienting. 

 

Flashback grounding cards for PTSD
A set of grounding cards for coping with flashbacks

Each set of grounding cards is printed using thick, glossy card, with each card measuring approximately 15x10cm (4" x 6") in size - making them an easy size to hold and large enough to read the information. Cards will not smudge if they get damp and they come in a similar sized clear plastic bag to keep them together. 

The techniques are best practiced in advance, so that they are already familiar for when a flashback occurs. If you have significant concentration problems you may find the information hard to grasp, a friend or therapist may be needed to help you try the techniques or to pick which are most suitable for you.

Grounding techniques can also be useful in reducing dissociation, including experiences associated with depersonalization and derealization. Dissociation is a common experience in many people with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, and of course in Dissociative Disorders. Dissociation takes many forms, and grounding may be helpful in dealing with feeling 'spaced out', not connected to the world or your physical body, and feeling unreal.

 

Disclaimer: These cards are not a substitute for professional help, and should not be considered advice or a 'cure'. You should not attempt any techniques that you do not feel comfortable with. Reliance on these cards is soley at your own risk. We will not be liable for any harm or negative consequences as a result of the information or suggestions provided on the cards or elsewhere on this website.
