    What does living with trauma feel like for different people?

    What does living with trauma feel like for different people?

    Premiered at the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival, Living With Trauma is now available for everyone to watch.

    This powerful short film uses storytelling, photography and artwork to explore different experiences of living with trauma.

    It was created by Chloe, Laura, Martin, Holly and Ruth who make up the With Us, For Us Lived Experience Project Group in collaboration with Scottish Recovery Network and Voices of Experience (VOX).

    The group came together to inform the design of services for people living with trauma and/or who have been given a diagnosis of personality disorder. As a peer group they have found their voice and want to share their perspectives and experiences more widely.

    A photobook accompanies this film and can be downloaded for free here https://bit.ly/PhotoBooklet
