Smart Policy Works seeks to break down economic, social and structural barriers to health and economic security. Through advocacy, expert analysis and training, they work to make systems and policies work better for all. This grant supports an alternative treatment for military sexual trauma. Warrior Stories is an innovative PTSD therapy using an online platform to treat Veterans who struggle with traditional talk therapy. Warrior Stories allows Veterans to express their experiences using images, as well as words, in a simple but powerful graphic novel style and to process these images with a therapist.
