SIXTH ANNUAL FOUNTAIN HOUSE SYMPOSIUM
 AND LUNCHEON

SPOTLIGHTS POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER

 

ABC’s Bob Woodruff, Lee Woodruff Are Recipients of Humanitarian Award

 

The Honorable Robert A. Antonioni, Glenn Close,

Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy Are Honorary Chairs

 

 

                              

(New York, NY  –  May 4, 2009)  –  The sixth annual Fountain House Symposium and Luncheon, entitled  “Invisible Wounds: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder,”  took place on Monday, May 4, 2009, at the Grand Ballroom of The Pierre in New York City. ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff and his wife Lee Woodruff were the recipients of the Fountain House Humanitarian Award for their extraordinary efforts on behalf of troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Consuelo Mack, managing editor and anchor ofConsuelo Mack WealthTrack,” served as Master of Ceremonies. Fountain House is an internationally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to bettering the lives of people living with major mental illness. 

 

“Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder has received significant media coverage due to its prevalence among veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, but the frequency of trauma among civilians is less well-recognized,” said Lynn Nicholas, PsyD, symposium Program Chair. Continued Nicholas, "More than half of American men and women experience catastrophic stress during their lives, and millions will develop PTSD, making it a major health problem in the US. ” Concluded Nicholas, “The goal of this year’s symposium is to dispel some of the myths, and to educate participants about early intervention, treatment, and support options available to them or to someone they know and love.”

 

The symposium featured a panel discussion by leading experts in the fields of mental health research, treatment, and public policy:

 

Marylene Cloitre, PhD, Cathy and Stephen Graham Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, NYU School of Medicine and Founding Director, Trauma and Resilience Research Program NYU Child Study Center;

C.A. (Andy) Morgan III, MD, MA, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry; Research Affiliate, History of Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine;

Nancy Venable Raine, author of After Silence: Rape and My Journey Back. 

 

Event Co-Chair Lorna Hyde Graev: “We hope that this annual event will raise awareness of the devastating impact of mental illness on our society, while educating our guests about the innovative programs of Fountain House, an award-winning New York City mental health organization with a unique rehabilitation model – one that really works.”

 

 

The Fountain House Symposium and Luncheon has become the premier educational forum on mental health in New York City, attracting guests from the worlds of philanthropy, business, and mental health. All proceeds benefit Fountain House.

 

Honorary Chairs: The Honorable Robert A. Antonioni,
Glenn Close,
US Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy.

Event Chairs: Patricia Begley, Lorna Hyde Graev, Alexandra A. Herzan, Anne Mai.

Program Chair: Lynn Nicholas, PsyD.

 

Among the attendees were: Courtney Arnot, Debbie Bancroft, Deeda Blair, Cornelia Bregman, Dr. Robert Cancro, Beth Rudin DeWoody, Mark Gilbertson, Sharon Handler, Mariana Kaufman, Peggy and Marne Obernauer, Pauline Pitt, Ann and John Pyne, Ann Rapp, Sydney Shuman, Topsy Taylor, Lis and Richard Waterman, 
Denise Wohl.

 

Lee and Bob Woodruff

Peabody Award winner Bob Woodruff joined ABC News in 1996 and was named co-anchor of ABC's  "World News Tonight" in December 2005. In January 2006, while reporting on US and Iraqi security forces, he was seriously injured by a roadside bomb that struck his vehicle. Mr. Woodruff and his wife Lee are the authors of a best-selling memoir, In an Instant, chronicling his injuries and how their family persevered through a time of intense trauma and uncertainty. The Woodruff family also established the Bob Woodruff Family Foundation for Traumatic Brain Injury (BWFF) to raise funds to assist members of the military with cognitive rehabilitation and care following a traumatic brain injury suffered in service to their country.

 

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is the only mental illness viewed by mental health professionals as directly caused by an external, traumatic event. About 8% of men and 10% of women will develop PTSD at some point in their lives.  It can manifest as horrific emotional pain, a sense of “going crazy,” disorientation, fearfulness, nightmares, flashbacks, emotional numbing, depression, inability to eat, sleep or think, and shame. PTSD may lead to alcoholism, drug abuse, inability to work, even suicide. Victims often suffer in secret and in silence, and get the message not to talk about what happened, or about how they feel. If untreated, many PTSD sufferers will not recover. Research involving WWII veterans and Holocaust survivors has shown that PTSD can persist for more than 50 years – in fact, for a lifetime.
