Fearless Nation is a nonprofit that provides education and peer-to-peer support for Residents navigating through the challenges of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Founder and Executive Director of Fearless Nation, Anya Ibor (also known as Colleen M. Crary in the physical world) holds a PhD in Psychology and has been using Second Life as a means to educate people about PTSD for over 12 years. Equally important to Anya is her advocacy for PTSD victims by sharing her extensive research. The Fearless Nation destination has an extensive interactive library on the subject matter, including literary works and informational slideshows. There are also little areas where Residents can reflect on their feelings including an area to cope with grief and a remembrance place. An eucomenical temple on a hill, set within a secluded garden lets followers of any religion (or none for that matter) reflect on loss, gather strength, and meet others in quiet contemplation. Relaxation can be acquired in the Yoga area on the beach, with informational panels to educate on the use of aromatherapy, and a mud bath with a nice cold shower to round off that section of the island. Want to conquer your anxiety through non-verbal making of art? Pottery and sewing stations are available in the arts center. An art exhibit about trauma, recovery, and resilience brings together prominent Second Life artists like Bryn Oh, along with the collective who participated in the award-winning “The Freedom Project” as well as artists from the physical realm, past and present, like Käthe Kollwitz and Joe Coleman. At the end of a long day, you can watch your avatar fall asleep in the cozy sleep room, while your analog alter ego turns off the light as well. Group meetings and other events surrounding PTSD support are starting soon, so join their inworld group and chime in by sharing your ideas for topics to discuss.
