#HelpHerRecover - Trauma Relief Fund

HELP HER RECOVER Trauma Relief Fund - Support and empower front line workers and marginalized populations as they strive to serve and move forward with the added stresses of the pandemic. 

It’s a painful truth: Front line essential workers are at high risk of developing depression, addiction, burnout, anxiety, compassion fatigue and a myriad of other mental health challenges every single day because of their exposure to trauma, all in the name of serving a greater good. During COVID-times, their suffering is greater than ever. And we can easily support them here.

Together we can help end suffering and provide relief and healing.

Each care pack provides items to foster resiliency, access to empowering self-care, and awakens their sense of community. They include trauma informed resources, stress relief, educational and therapeutic tools that support essential workers.

Our challenge

The coronavirus outbreak exacerbates existing inequalities for women and girls across every sphere – from health and the economy, to security and social protection. 

Women play a disproportionate role in responding to the virus, including as frontline healthcare workers and caregivers at home.

Unaddressed trauma significantly increases the risk of mental and substance use disorders and chronic physical diseases.

Emerging data shows that, since the outbreak of the pandemic, violence against women and girls – and particularly domestic violence – has intensified.

Sadly, our underserved populations, front line healthcare workers, essential staff and caregivers are being greatly affected by an 80% increase in demand for medical care.

These people need self-care, access to stress management tools, psycho-educational services, coaching, holistic care and more to begin their journey toward healing.

Together we can provide important services and support.

With your support, we are delivering more than a thousand trauma relief care packs to essential workers, offering trauma recovery care to 500 survivors, and providing ongoing education, life-skills training, and critical information to those in need.

By creating awareness, providing services and generating opportunities, we are helping those who are under served and unable to rise to discover hope and a welcoming community so they can find their way toward recovery.

“We are experiencing one of the most challenging world events of the 21st century,” explains Amanda Willett. “Women need resources to cope, especially if they are struggling with burnout, compassion fatigue and complex trauma or in urgent need of support. Our “Rising Strong” campaign seeks to build a community of compassion and serve as a pillar of hope, which is the starting point from which a journey of recovery must begin.”

Help us help others. Donate now and share our message with your friends and family.

We need 1000 people in Ontario to donate $175.00 and we will reach our goal.
