UAlberta HiMARC program receives $3M to advance PTSD treatment


The University of Alberta’s Heroes in Mind, Advocacy and Research Consortium (HiMARC) program will be receiving over $3M over five years from the Government of Alberta to advance innovative treatment options for those who have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The consortium will provide Albertans who have served in the military and have PTSD with treatment using motion-assisted, multimodal memory desensitization and reconsolidation. This will include viewing images using virtual reality while walking on a treadmill and receiving support from a therapist.
