It can be helpful to keep a list of your support people and phone numbers. You might like to make a plan for what you can do when you find it hard to remember what can help. This might include numbers for the Blue Knot Helpline and Redress Support Service, Lifeline for 24/7 crisis support, friends who understand, your counsellor, or other services you have connected with.
It might also remind you to do some activities that nurture you like remembering to breathe, having a cup of tea, going outside and being in nature, connecting with your pets, having a shower, listening to music, drawing, colouring in etc. Keep the list on the fridge, on your phone, or anywhere you can easily find it.
Research shows that with the right support people can and do heal. Many survivors go on to tell stories of recovery. And of resilience beyond survival. We hope you find the information and support here useful. Please read through the different sections when you can, to find out what you need for support.
