Blue Knot Day is an Australian national day on which Blue Knot Foundation calls on all Australians to unite in support of the more than 5 million (1 in 4) Australian adults who have experienced complex trauma.
Thursday October 28th is our annual Blue Knot Day and like last year, we will be holding a Festival of Healing accessible digitally through social media and registered online events. This year’s theme, Building a Trauma-Informed Community, reflects the work Blue Knot does every day in creating community and disseminating trauma-informed understanding far and wide.
The day will include short sessions for survivors as well as sessions for those who support them. We will also be hearing from a number of people speaking personally about their own healing journey, what has helped them, as well as some of the barriers they faced when services were not as trauma-informed as they could be. Several practitioners will also be joining us, including those with their own lived experience, and will speak about their trauma-informed visions and practice.
The festival will also include a range of activities which you can choose to take part in, and we will also be sharing some resources throughout the day which we hope you will find beneficial. We will continue to share more information about the day as plans progress, so ensure that you have subscribed to our Breaking Free newsletter, and watch this space!
