In recognition of PTSD Awareness Day and the many men and women of service who suffer from PTSD, we would like to acknowledge the tremendous courage of Captain Trevor Greene in his journey to recover from a devastating injury, and inspiring the vision to find solutions in PTSD and Mental Health for all Veterans and First Responders through Legion Veterans Village.
With the assistance of Dr. Ryan D’Arcy, Trevor has worked hard to “rethink what’s possible” in pushing the limits of neuroplasticity and overcome his devastating brain injury incurred during a peacekeeping mission in Afghanistan.
There was not a dry eye in the house during TEDxBearCreekPark earlier this year. The stories were incredible and in particular, Trevor Greene’s incredible journey will inspire us all to challenge boundaries and unleash our brains’ potential for positive impact and to rethink what’s possible.
