ALTHOUGH a psychologist can best provide treatment for you, it can also help to join a support group in addition to your clinical treatment. And, for some people, a support group is a good place to begin getting help; only after a while might you want to seek out professional treatment.

Either way, I have provided information about some trauma support resources below. Through feedback, the list might grow.

 


 
Support for Healing from Abortion

Project Rachel  is an outreach of the Catholic Church, but it is open to anyone who is struggling after an abortion loss. It is able to help both women and men, parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, and others whose lives have been affected by an abortion loss.

Support for Aviation Accident Survivors

Wings of Light  is a national nonprofit public charity that provides a Survivors Support Network, a Family and Friends Support Network, and a Rescue/Response Personnel Support Network. In addition, they provide an information source and a professional referral source.

The National Air Disaster Alliance  is an alliance of family groups that was formed after different U.S. aviation disasters. Not a support group per se, it may be able to offer assistance if a family member has been involved in an aircraft disaster.

Support for Healing from Child Abuse

Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (ASCA)  is an innovative psychologically based support group recovery program. They offer workshops, peer-guided and professional-guided support groups, and a guidebook, Survivor to Thriver.

Support for Healing from Dissociation

Many Voices  is an “international self-help newsletter for DID clients and their therapists” that offers “Words Of Hope for People Recovering From Trauma & Dissociation.”

Support for Healing from Medically Induced Trauma

Medically Induced Trauma Support Services (MITSS)  “is a non-profit organization founded in June of 2002 whose mission is ‘To Support Healing and Restore Hope’ to patients, families, and clinicians who have been affected by an adverse medical event. Medically induced trauma is an unexpected outcome that occurs during medical and/or surgical care that affects the emotional well being of the patient, family member, or clinician.”

Support for Healing from Trauma

The Gift from Within  is “a non-profit organization dedicated to those who suffer post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), those at risk for PTSD, and those who care for traumatized individuals.” It also provides a pen pal list for survivors of trauma.
