Building skills and strategies
We deliver 30 sessions on PTSD awareness to workplaces and individuals (through open sessions) each year. The audience can be diverse from service workers to carers to the general public.
Of those who participate 59% identified their knowledge of the topic had “Signficantly” (12%) to “Extremely” (47%) increased. Participants reported the use of personal experiences and current statistics to be the best parts of the program.
