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.
