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 didn’t know you would become a part of my life forever. I didn’t know I would find you in all of the things I once enjoyed and that you would take over my daily life. However, I also didn’t know that you would shape my future into a career where I would spend the rest of my life helping survivors like me. I am not thankful for my trauma, but I am thankful for the opportunity to make a difference.
