A United States Postal Service stamp is helping to raise money for victims of post-traumatic stress disorder.

The new "Healing PTSD" stamp shows a plant sprouting from the ground. This symbolizes the healing process of PTSD, representing the healing process, growth and hope.

"With this semipostal stamp, the U.S. Postal Service will raise funds to help treat those impacted by post traumatic stress disorder. Tens of millions of Americans will experience PTSD in their lifetimes. Today, the nation is increasingly dedicated to compassionately treating this mental health issue," USPS said.

The "Healing PTSD" stamp is sold at a price of 65 cents per First-Class stamp or $13 for a sheet of 20.
