COVID-19 Support Campaign

Application Period Open August 3-17, 2020

Your Support Changes Lives

In these unprecedented time, ISSTD is committed to continuing to provide those in our community who have been affected financially by COVID-19 with access to ISSTD resources including membership, webinars, training courses, and events.

Donations to the COVID-19 Support Campaign will help us to provide free and reduced cost ISSTD memberships and event registration fees to those in need. We are asking those who are able to consider a donation of $19 or more to support this effort.

ISSTD funding comes from your individual membership, conferences and training, contributions, and our generous international donors. The ISSTD is leading the way countries around the world understand, treat, and prevent trauma and dissociation. Your kindness heals others.
