AMOH’s second Town Hall Meeting features four segments.
Culture Corner: Renowned Traverse City guitarist, Ron Getz, is the featured musician.
Caught in the Act of Caring: A surprise announcement during the Town Hall Meeting.
Treatment Provider’s Perspective: Amelia Hasenohrl, MA, LPC, CHt, received her graduate degree in counseling from Michigan State University. Hasenohrl opted to become a certified hypnotherapist when she realized the valuable tool it can be in counseling. She has been in practice for over 20 years and has worked with the Munson Medical Center Memory and Attention Training Center in Traverse City since 1994. In 2007, she began teaching in Northwestern Michigan College’s Extended Education Services and founded her counseling and hypnosis practice, Grand Traverse Hypnotherapy and Counseling.
Founder’s Forum: Moral injury considerations in PTSD and what we can do about it in Traverse City. Linda Fletcher, Lieutenant Colonel (ret) Army Nurse Corps, holds a master’s degree from Texas Woman’s University in Trauma Nursing. After retiring from the U.S. Army, Fletcher owned several businesses but has focused her attention over the past eight years on a self-directed study of PTSD. She taught her first classes at Northwestern Michigan College in April of 2013 and from that sprang the grassroots veterans’ advocacy organization, AMOH. She currently serves as the Executive Director of AMOH and lectures frequently in various venues around the city on combat PTSD
AMOH organized November 2013, is growing fast and is “the only organization in the U.S. dedicated to educating our citizens about the affects of PTSD in those who have served in our military.” PTSD and the affects of it, including suicide, exist in epidemic proportions.
This organization’s mission is to provide a forgotten but fundamental step in quelling any epidemic – education of the public. Everyone seems to want to do something, but haven’t had access to the education and information necessary to contribute in a meaningful way….until now.
