Date:11/11/2009

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Mental Health America today announced it is partnering with Prescription Audio, a Philadelphia-area based firm (Voorhees, N.J.), to make the company's scientifically based sound therapy available without charge as a download to veterans, active duty servicemen and women, their family members and health care providers.

"We applaud Prescription Audio for making this therapy available for free and are proud to partner with them," said David Shern, Ph.D., president and CEO of Mental Health America. "It is a valuable stress management and anxiety reduction tool that can immediately help our active duty troops, veterans, their families and caregivers."

Similar Prescription Audio sound therapy is currently being prescribed within the Department of Veterans Affairs and US Army hospitals to aid in the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), insomnia, high stress and compassion fatigue.

In honor of Veterans Day, and in light of recent events including the Fort Hood shootings, the 250,000 copies of the download are being made available at no charge to any veteran, active duty servicemen and women, their families, as well as compassion fatigued healthcare providers suffering from mental health symptoms related to the treatment of PTSD and other related conditions. The value of the products and services being donated is approximately $5 million.

"In these trying times, we felt like we had to do something to support our warriors, veterans, their families and the mental health professionals that serve them," said Jill Slane, CEO of Prescription Audio. Individuals can learn more about sound therapy, discover how it can start helping them and access the download by going to Mental Health America's Operation Healthy Reunion's site at http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/reunions/resources.cfm or by clicking here.

Prescription Audio was developed by Jill and Rod Slane, a husband-wife team, in 2005. Rod Slane has used his more than 40 years experience as a composer and innovative sound engineer to create the Life Program(TM), followed by Natural Wellness Therapy in 2006.

One of the company's early aims was to help ease the anguish of veterans suffering from PTSD. By using proprietary sound technology, Prescription Audio's array of MP3 and CD programs provide natural mental and general health solutions that diminish anxiety and its many detrimental manifestations, while enabling anyone to quickly and easily achieve a meditative state of mind.

Prescription Audio provides products and services through its Life Program to the U.S. military's Institute of Surgical Research Stress Management Program for Healthcare Providers, a strong testament to the power and effectiveness of their approach. In this application, vibrational sound therapy is utilized to help reduce the high rate of turnover in trauma healthcare workers within military hospitals by teaching stress management tactics, leading to improved mental health and increased resiliency.
