Author Michele Rosenthal recently published her memoir, Before the World Intruded: Conquering the Past and Creating the Future. The book recounts the twenty-four years she spent struggling with undiagnosed Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and her subsequent healing. In celebration of the book release, Rosenthal (pictured, via) has launched Project Give Back.
Those who buy Rosenthal’s book before May 31st can sign up to receive free gifts from Project Give Back. She sought out trauma counselors and other professionals to donate $1,900 worth of free gifts including eBooks, videos, counseling sessions, therapeutic memberships and more. She will also be raffling off nearly $6,500 in special gifts.
Here’s more about Project Give Back: “The driving principle behind everything I do is the idea that we don’t heal in isolation; we heal in community…As a post-trauma coach, host of a radio talk show and the founder of www.healmyptsd.com, I hear from survivors of all types of traumas, from combat to domestic violence to sexual assault, child abuse, accidents and illnesses. I often hear that treatment costs more than they can afford. PROJECT GIVE BACK was born as a way to unify the professional trauma community and allow survivors to access products and experiences that may help them move toward recovery.”
