Long-term management of PTSD through active philanthropy.

Who We Are

Camp Aftermath is a project of the non-for-profit organization Aftermath Association, founded in December 2016. The Camp is run by a dedicated group of Ottawa-based volunteers and supporters who seek to provide a novel approach to managing PTSD through active philanthropy.

How We Help

We aim to help military members and veterans, along with first responders suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We seek to provide a holistic approach to long-term management of PTSD, with various therapy approaches under one roof, including  self-healing activities, holistic therapy methods and charity work.

What We Need

Camp Aftermath is currently looking for financial contributions to send our first rotation of participants suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to Costa Rica in 2018. If you want to make a difference and have a real impact on the lives of people suffering from PTSD: this is the place to start.
