Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a condition affecting some adults and children who have experienced a traumatic event. The Healing PTSD stamp image of a green sprout is intended as a “powerful symbol of the healing process, growth and hope for tens of millions of Americans who experience PTSD,” said David C. Williams, U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors Vice Chairman at the dedicating ceremony. The Semipostal Authorization Act entitles the USPS to issue semipostal stamps to advance causes “in the national public interest,” as demonstrated by the 2017 Alzheimer’s semipostal which funded medical research on the disease.
