BlackDog is a group of Veterans that use the pain and experiences from their military service to reach out to others that need help coping with the issues that come with PTSD. By reliving their own pain and using it as a map for others to follow, they bring those hurting alone in the darkness, help them face the monsters, and bring them back into the light.
     Each community has within its borders needs that are still not being met by standard means, making it harder for veterans in need to reach out, and the situation goes unhealed. Those that have been reached are given purpose by teaching them to use their experience to help others.
     This process of veteran mediators helping Veterans has been extended to others in need such as civilians suffering from PTSD, TBI, domestic violence victims, abuse victims and others in need. Through these processes and teachings, we are expanding the healing power of BlackDog.
