Support for Members

Dear Members and Families,

 

After a significant event it can sometimes be useful to know the supports that are available as well as things to watch out for in both adults and young people.

Attached is an information sheet on the impact of trauma on young people and some things that can help.  Below is a link to similar information for adults.
