Ivy Tech Community College
3100 Ivy Tech Drive, Valparaiso, IN
Who suffers the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)? For veterans, the effects of PTSD can be life-altering for themselves and the people around them: spouses, children, parents, siblings, coworkers and employers.
Join us on Veterans Day 2015 for “Understanding PTSD,” a personal keynote presentation by US Marine Veteran, Silouan Green. Sharing his own experience living with and recovering from severe PTSD, Silouan’s message brings awareness, understanding and hope for the opportunity to overcome trauma and build a life of purpose.
This special community event held on Veterans Day is designed to educate, inspire and dispel the stigma that surrounds PTSD. Come learn about PTSD and what we—as individuals and as a community—can do to turn the tide on this epidemic that has impacted so many soldiers, their families and our society.
Following Silouan’s presentation, please join us for a Continental Breakfast and Resource Fair.
This is a FREE COMMUNITY-WIDE EVENT! Invite veterans, their families, area leaders and the greater community! Reservations are required - REGISTER HERE

Pines Village Donates Benches From Recycled Caps
Pines Village Retirement Communities was excited to deliver two completed benches to local schools, created from recycled plastic caps collected since last November. Pines Village residents led a drive to collect 400 pounds of recyclable plastic caps to create each permanent bench. “With the community’s support, we were able to collect more than 800 pounds of caps so far – enough to create two benches,” said Lou Foster, Pines Village resident and President of the Resident Council. The two benches were donated to the Discovery Charter School in Porter, and the Dunes Learning Center in Chesterton. Read More>
