Launches Outreach & Awareness Campaign
We’re excited to announce the launch of our Spring & Summer Outreach and Awareness Campaign.
We’ve taken an holistic approach by connecting with various agencies, service providers and non profits that are involved in providing alternative treatment options for veterans with post-traumatic stress.
Wave Academy’s new outreach coordinator, Tim Caudill, is spearheading our outreach and awareness planning. Together, Wave Academy office personnel, practitioners and our volunteers are meeting local community members at various locations throughout San Diego, including: college campuses; veterans meet-ups; Veterans Affairs functions; community programs; and city council and coalition meetings.
In addition to the above, Wave Academy's clinical case manager, Candice Colón, presented at this month’s San Diego County Suicide Prevention Council monthly meeting. She provided a wonderful presentation, including a peak at our website, video testimonials, and statistical information about who we are, who we're serving and how to access our services.
We’ve also made inroads with the California Department of Veterans Affairs and collaborated on an email blast to their San Diego database announcing our offer of 8 free Aquatic Bodywork Therapy sessions over an eight-week period. The response was very encouraging! So far we’ve received over 60 applications from veterans seeking relief from PTS. We look forward to our relationship with the Cal Vet evolving over time.
