This Spotlight Report was commissioned by the National Mental Health Commission in recognition of the significant need to build awareness and understanding of the often chronic and largely unmet needs of people living with the long-term impacts of complex trauma. This report reviews the current research and practice into complex trauma and experiences of people with a lived experience of complex trauma – how they have engaged with the system and how the systems have responded to their needs. It highlights the chasm between needs and the system’s capacity to meet them, to support healing and recovery, minimise experiences of re-traumatisation and to be heard, respected and supported to live meaningful participating connected lives.
