Who We Are

Background

BrainsTrust is a not-for-profit, independant organisation founded out of personal experience of violence and trauma and the impact on relationships with family, friends and work.

Emotions

People can experience a range of strong emotions after a traumatic event. There is no ‘right’ or expected way to respond and people react in many different ways.

Relationships

Emotional distress can make it difficult to relate to other people. A person might withdraw from family, friends and social activities or become overprotective

Work

Returning to work after a traumatic event can be difficult, but returning to your normal routine will help you to feel your life is getting back on track
