State offers PTSD Awareness license plate to raise awareness and support

VESTAVIA HILLS – A new car tag, aimed at raising awareness and support for individuals affected by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, is being offered through the state.

The PTSD Awareness Distinctive license plate is the latest initiative of Sojourn Counseling.

PTSD affects millions of individuals worldwide, often stemming from traumatic experiences such as combat, accidents, or abuse. Despite its prevalence, many still face stigma and barriers to accessing the necessary support and resources.

With the introduction of the PTSD Awareness Distinctive license plate, Sojourn Counseling aims to spark conversations surrounding PTSD, reduce stigma, and foster a community of support for those affected, according to a news release. The distinctive design of the license plate serves as a visible symbol of solidarity and understanding for individuals living with PTSD and their loved ones.

“Not only does the PTSD Awareness Distinctive License Plate raise vital funds for our counseling services, but it also serves as a beacon of hope and understanding for those affected by PTSD,” said Beau Armistead, director of Sojourn Counseling. “We believe that by bringing this issue to the forefront, we can create a more supportive and compassionate community for individuals living with PTSD, and spread the message that there is hope for healing.”

Funds generated from the sale of the license pate will directly support Sojourn Counseling’s mission to provide accessible mental health services to individuals and families in Alabama.

“We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to partner with the community in promoting PTSD awareness and supporting those in need,” said Armistead.

The PTSD Awareness Distinctive license plate is available through the Alabama Department of Revenue’s Motor Vehicle Division website.
