“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 telling people, locally and globally, more about psychological trauma; its causes, effects and treatment and to place that knowledge on a world stage.
We run large scale events with local and world experts, to raise awareness and share details of some of the ways of healing trauma. We strive to improve the health, happiness and wellbeing of those who struggle with physical and mental health problems.
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 ultimate goal is a world where people stop hurting themselves and others because of traumas and other adverse experiences.
