Trauma is not an illness. It is an injury which can be healed.
Our mission is to research and establish the key facts about psychological trauma and other adverse experiences; the causes, effects and treatment and to place this knowledge on a world stage.
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 is equally disquieting. By raising awareness and sharing details of some of the ways of healing trauma, we hope to improve the health, happiness and wellbeing of those who struggle with physical and mental health problems.
