What is Trauma?

Trauma can affect everyone and often occurs in childhood. Things like domestic violence, loss, abuse or even having separated parents can often be traumatic.

Don't Forget

Life is full of ups and downs and that can also impact children's wellbeing. It doesn't always have to be due to trauma.
