Why ‘Blue Knot’ Day?
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.
Blue Knot Day is held every year in October. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Blue Knot Day and it falls on Monday 28th October. Events will be held around the country in support of adult survivors during Blue Knot week from October 28th – November 3rd. The theme this year is:
Blue Knot Day is an opportunity for all Australians to unite and support survivors of complex trauma on their path to recovery. By supporting and empowering survivors we can inspire hope which helps build resilience on the path to recovery from complex trauma. By uniting we can all help untangle the knot and complexities of trauma and abuse to support the recovery, resilience and empowerment of survivors.
The following hashtags will be used across social media:
The tangled knot in the Blue Knot logo symbolises the complexity of complex trauma, with blue representing the colour of the sky and a clear blue sky providing the space for new possibilities.
