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 trauma research that helps saves lives and improves quality of life for survivors.  You can find out more here.

We are currently developing an interactive AfterTrauma app to help survivors with their rehabilitation and motivation.  Contact Nicole if you'd like to be involved.

Do you have any personal stories or videos you'd like to share on our Survivor's Stories page, or our YouTube channel?  Feel free to contact Nicole and she will post them.

There are also fun ways to raise community awareness and funds for improvements in trauma treatments.  More info here.

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