By donating to the Psychophysiologic Disorders Association (PPDA), you will be joining professionals in Medicine and Psychology who are relieving one of the oldest and most widespread forms of illness for the first time. Though physicians have understood for thousands of years that stress can cause physical symptoms, care for people afflicted with this condition has made little progress. Now in the 21st century an effective diagnostic and treatment approach is available. What remains is a challenging but achievable goal: to train health care professionals to apply this technique.
Your support is needed to expand the capabilities of the PPDA website and our ability to present teaching conferences. This will enable us to train health care professionals to provide Stress Check-Ups, the essential first step in uncovering the cause of a PPD and initiating successful treatment. No financial support is provided to personnel since all our staff and Board members are passionate volunteers. Please join us in this historic effort that will provide effective treatment for people who have run out of options.
The PPDA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and your donation is tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
