READ MORE ABOUT THE HEY TRAUMA CAMPAIGN
Our Goal: At Hey Trauma, we are expanding the conversation to “What happens after trauma enters your life?” for all survivors who experience violence and those also impacted — their partners, friends, and family. Not only is a broader conversation needed, but a broader understanding surrounding the mental and physical AFTERMATH of violence in general…without shaming, blaming, invalidating, or placing the survivor on trial. We at Hey Trauma, want to destigmatize life post personal violence, increase trauma awareness, and give voice to what is often silenced, dismissed, and shamed.
All written works are 100% anonymous!

Hey Trauma, The Day We Met


I thought I would forever more be that scared little girl clutching her little sister while tears covered my face. I thought the screams would forever more echo in my head. But now I barely remember the exact words spoken. All I remember is how scared I was. and the times I’ve been scared since. But every time I feel my life has come to an end I always wipe the tears away and get back up. no matter how hard it has been.
