The effects of traumatization on an individual’s life easily remain unrecognized.
The Finnish service system needs more professional and experiential knowledge of structural dissociation and the effects of trauma.
We are working together with peers, professionals, and other associations to promote the availability of proper support. Pursuing a common cause supports recovery and makes you stronger. We encourage each other, providing one other with security and hope.
We encourage openness about dissociative disorders – trauma is not our fault. We foster open discussion, avoid confrontation, and strive to reduce prejudice and stigma.
We make a safe community. For us, diversity is an asset, and everyone is valuable. The association is politically and religiously independent and bound by its values and rules. Our operation is based on research and experience.
We are building safe togetherness. We learn from each other, support one another and sustain hope!
Trauma survivors and their families, professionals and anyone with interest is welcome to join as a member.
