Healing traumatic stress and raising performance in at-risk populations
Soldiers returning from combat, as well as underserved youth living in violence and poverty, often suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), called the “black death of the 21st century.” This living nightmare fuels violent, impulsive behavior; substance abuse; acute anxiety; manic depression; the inability to hold a job or stay in school; frayed family relations; and homelessness.
Hundreds of thousands of scholarships
The David Lynch Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, has been a global leader in the fight against PTSD since 2005. The Foundation has provided scholarships for hundreds of thousands of at-risk youth, veterans and their families, and other underserved populations to learn the stress-reducing, health-promoting Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique.
Support from the public and private sectors
The effectiveness of the TM technique has been documented at top medical schools, including UCLA, Stanford, Harvard, and Yale, and has received endorsements and support from private foundations and government agencies, including the National Institutes of Health, the General Motors Foundation, the Chrysler Foundation, the Kellogg Foundation, top veteran service organizations and military leaders, multiple school districts, and state departments of corrections.
