What motivated me to hold a Blue Knot Day event? I'm a budding health professional with a lived experience of child abuse. I am starting the process of recovery and, at age 25, have only recently come to terms with my symptoms associated with complex childhood trauma. I've had amazing psychologists who have supported me through those years, however I can only imagine the change in outcome if my initial therapists had recognised the abuse as it was happening and addressed complex dimensions of being a child of a parent with a severe mental illness.
Sometimes the silence around survivors of child abuse can seem deafening. Getting involved in supporting ASCA's national day of awareness helped me help myself in a safe way. It also allows me to show my support for other young survivors because we HAVE survived and I truly believe that supportive communities help survivors recover.
Planning small fundraising events in support of Blue Knot Day at my volunteer centre and workplaces has been an empowering experience for me. I want the voice of Adults Surviving Child Abuse to be heard, now.
