What is the Trauma Awareness campaign?
A community engagement campaign aimed at helping individuals who have been suffering both mentally and physically from the impacts of Coronavirus. The campaign will embrace the values of the community, drawing on how individuals were able to pull together throughout the pandemic, coming to the aid of vulnerable people in their communities. The campaign will also be based around compassion, understanding, and building a kinder Neath as we recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. I am asking individuals, organisations, businesses and schools to take the simple pledge: Be kind, think of others and Ask for help if you need it. This will raise awareness of the importance of mental health in all age groups. The Campaign will be held in partnership with Neath Port Talbot Mind.
