Support Your Community Through Thick & Thin

About Us:

Please support 'PTSD & C-PTSD TRAUMA SURVIVORS DEVON' - the only trauma targetted support service in Devon for adults.

As survivors ourselves, we understand the particular difficulties of overcoming trauma, whether historic or recent. Our PRIVATE / CLOSED / MEMBERS ONLY Facebook group offers a very private, safe, and non-judgemental recovery sharing space, where local friendships are also made.

PTSD & C-PTSD TRAUMA SURVIVORS DEVON provides a much valued service for the community. In just six months, we hold 560+ members, and this shows the great need for the support we offer.

We hold out a hand to 'trauma survivors' via live support in our ‘Closed / Private / Members only’ Facebook group, from 9am - midnight.

How we help the local community...

  • Suicide prevention and recovery...our no. 1 mission.
  • In times of crisis, group admin / moderators talk to, and support each member, and actively encourage accessing immediate help, including out of hours mental health services.
  • We signpost to various abuse specific local and UK wide services.
  • We 'hold' members in a safe place, whilst they wait alone for up to 3 years for trauma therapy.
  • As well as the private discussions available in our group, we operate various Facebook Messenger chat groups for reaching out emotionally.
  • Encourage better patient to GP link ups, and other mental health services.
  • Organise monthly social meet ups for members.
  • Share recovery advice and techniques, plus methods of calming members through periods of extreme anxiety.
  • Explore and educate regarding secondary conditions that arise from trauma.
  • Promote and encourage participation at free local mental health recovery courses.
  • We promote recovery through gaining and retaining hope, the understanding of ones abilities and disabilities, engagement in active life, personal autonomy, social identity, all therefore giving purpose in life and wellness.

 

Our volunteer group admin come from a wide variety of caring backgrounds, including: Registered nurse, counsellors, community care workers and a member of the police service. 

Through our lived experience of trauma and mental health illness, we use sustainable support, such as peer support training to include 'Applied Suicide Prevention Skills' / 'Mental Health First Aid' and Domestic Abuse Training.

We need your help please, so we can continue to offer and even expand our support service to our local community. We do run on 'bare bones' financially, but desperately need some funds for printing promotional leaflets / posters, website running costs, and room hire and refreshments costs for monthly member get togethers.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

From Frankie Lowe, and the 'survivors' support admin at:
