“Trauma is not an illness. It is an injury which can be healed”
Action Trauma is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to changing lives for the better by promoting awareness of Trauma and Trauma Recovery throughout the World. It is not an illness – it is an injury which can be healed. We create and run large scale international and local events addressing all aspects of trauma, anxiety and stress, along with recovery from the health problems, depressions and addictions which they cause.
Trauma is a world pandemic, but together we can ‘Be the Change’ and bring hope, recovery, resilience and healing to a world that is hurting.
BUILD RESILIENCE – BEAT THE TRAUMA – BREAK THE CYCLE
Psychological trauma can be caused by obvious things such as wars, tragedies and abuse but it can also have more subtle causes, such as problems and difficulties during pregnancy and birth as well as attachment issues, and childhood adversities. It fills our prisons and makes people hurt themselves and others.
Trauma has been established as one of the leading causes of poor mental health. The impact on our physiology and immune system is profound.
Our vision is a world where people stop hurting themselves and each other because of traumas and adverse experiences.
