Stop Hurting, Start Helping

“Too often, mental health services recreate the traumas that drove us mad in the first place.”

This 2 minute video clip points to the need for services to provide compassionate and thoughtful responses to people suffering the burden of trauma, and to be wary of perpetuating or recreating trauma through coercion, control and force.

It features Indigo Daya, a “survivor of madness, trauma & mental health services”. She writes:

“Too often, mental health services recreate the traumas that drove us mad in the first place.”

The video is an extract from her keynote address – titled “Stop Hurting, Start Helping” – at the Reawaken Australia Conference 2019.

The full keynote address can be watched (video) here.

Her blog site – from which the image above taken is taken – can be found here.
