Fantastic

We all have something that’s hard to talk about. This podcast helps to reduce the stigma and create a safe and open forum for us to actually talk about it!
Glad to know this group!

Captivating and emotional

This is a huge step in a so needed right direction!
The ability to speak about what is hardest to speak about..... To open up and feel it’s simply ok to do so, and that your life experience just may tough someone else and help them......

Well done yet again Lauren!!!!!

Someone is listening

It’s hard to talk about trauma, but burying it can have long lasting and terrible consequences. Here Lauren provides survivors of trauma with an outlet to anonymously (if desired) put it out there for people who may need to hear any one of these stories to not feel so alone. To maybe even learn a new way to cope with their own trauma or help a loved one with theirs. Lauren provides a safe space to speak and to listen.
