Get Involved

There are many ways to be be involved in the AfterTrauma community.  

You can connect with other survivors and carers via the on-line community chatroom. Instructions on how to use the chatroom are below.  We have also set up a Facebook Group for survivors to find and connect with each other.

There are also lots of different ways patients and members of the public can contribute to our research.  Our Public and Patient Involvement Officer Kerry Staab co-ordinates involvement. You can find out more here.

Do you have any videos you'd like to share with other survivors or trauma researchers?  Feel free to contact us with links, and we'll post them to our YouTube channel.

You can also share thoughts and news items with us via Twitter.
