About Trauma Speaks
Welcome to Trauma Speaks.
A mental health non-profit organization with the purpose of raising awareness about mental health. We hope that this website can serve as an inspiration, and motivation and help people understand that mental health is as important as physical health. We are advocates for breaking the stigma attached to mental health. Mental health is not just black and white, it's all about the gray area, the in-between. It's not just about mental health diagnoses like depression, personality disorders, schizophrenia, PTSD, and many more, but also stress, grief, phase of life problems, and so forth.
We want Trauma Speaks to serve as a platform for anybody who has experienced mental health struggles and be able to have open discussions regarding mental health. Our objective is to raise awareness and reduce the mindset of victim blaming, and victimization attached to the trauma experienced, as well as stigma attached to mental health & wellness. We also want to highlight the benefits of sharing your stories through how you overcame your battles, how you took care of yourself, and what made you realize mental health is as important as everything else.
We only have 2 rules for this website:
1. To keep this a safe space for everyone
2. Spread the love and awareness about mental health and trauma
