Tonight we are joined by the amazing Cathy Kezelman @Cathyblueknot, the President of the Blue Knot Foundation, who is answering some of the Community's questions about Trauma. We have packed lots of questions into this live event, and the discussion may move quickly!


Here's a message from Cathy and a little bit about the expertise that she will bring to this discussion tonight:
"I’d like to thank you for the invitation to join your community tonight. My name’s Cathy Kezelman and I’m President of Blue Knot Foundation. We’re a national organization that works to empower people to recover from what we call complex trauma. Complex trauma is repeated usually interpersonal trauma (between people) such as violence, abuse, neglect or exploitation that occurs as a child, young person or adult or any different ages."Blue Knot Foundation Logo.jpg

We are also joined tonight by @girasole, one of our Peer Support Workers here on the forums! You will see @girasole  offering support to members posting to this event, answering some of the questions themselves.


Join us at 7pm AEDT when we kick off this live event here in the Friends Family and Carers Forum! See you soon😊
