About Thriving Together

Trauma, whether physical, emotional, verbal, or sexual, can have long-term effects on mental health. People who have experienced abuse or other trauma have a higher risk of developing a mental health condition, including depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

During Thriving Together survivors of sexual (including adult survivors of child sexual abuse) and intimate partner violence explore ways to live well, be informed self-advocates, address stigma, and the health disparities that challenge wellbeing.

In this open and welcoming space, survivors are able to reflect on the unique intersection of trauma and mental health.

Sessions feature expressive-arts activities, self-care practices, relaxation techniques, education and guest speakers. A free program but registration is required.
