Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) 


What is Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)?

According to the Mayo Clinic, PTSD is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.


Most people who go through traumatic events may have temporary difficulty adjusting and coping, but with time and good self-care, they usually get better. If the symptoms get worse, last for months or even years, and interfere with your day-to-day functioning, you may have PTSD.


HeartSprings is a believer and advocate of improving the mind and body through the mind~body concept. And getting effective treatment after PTSD symptoms develop can be critical to reduce symptoms and improve function. HeartSprings can help you learn to manage that. 

HeartSprings offers different programs to help those with PTSD learn to cope. We can help you by using our newest technology utilizing sound therapy to help with sensitivity and cognitive issues!
Some of those programs are:
*Trauma Sensitive Yoga

*Emotion Code

*DreamPad® Pillow (Operation Sleep Soundly)






HeartMath® offers ways to help calm your body AND your mind. Our very own Executive Director of HeartSprings can guide you through an 8 to10 week program that will help build resiliency, change your brain, provide assistance with test anxiety, teach you how to de-stress, and how to take charge of your body, instead of your body having charge over you! 
Discover what the "heart" can do!

In an effort to increase awareness of behavioral health initiatives, utilization of best practices, and access to training and technical assistance, the North Dakota Department of Human Services’ Behavioral Health Division has launched the following new resources:

Behavioral health conditions can have a powerful effect on the health and well-being of individuals, their families and communities. These conditions are among the leading causes of disability in the United States and result in significant costs to families, employers and publicly-funded health systems. By 2020, mental health and substance use disorders are projected to surpass all physical diseases as a major cause of disability worldwide.

The Department will continue to host an annual Behavioral Health Conference each fall.
