After Trauma – Healing, Recovery, Growth

What happens after things are more stable? How do you put your life back together? Does it feel overwhelming?


You’re on the path to recovering your quality of life. You’re getting back to how things were before the crisis happened. There might be some parts of your pre-crisis life that you want to keep, and other parts that you want to change. Most of us end up doing some combination of the two.


Recovery is possible.


I chose the posts and resources on this page specifically for helping you with the recovery journey. There is also a mini-course in development, and that will be ready soon.

To keep things simple, there are only two other resources that I recommend here (and why you can trust them):

  • National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800-273-8255) – “The Lifeline” is a national network of local crisis call centers. The counselors get a lot of training and all Lifeline centers follow national guidelines. I didn’t just read that from their website, btw, I know it from years of working behind the scenes with crisis center directors, staff, and volunteers. As a member of the national committees I have seen how the standards in use have incorporated advice from people who have lived through a suicidal crisis
  • Now Matters Now – This online resource includes a wealth of information provided to help you get through a suicidal crisis and keep things more stable. The skills they teach through videos are based on decades of research. The people teaching the skills have lived through their own suicidal crisis. I’m a strong believer in their mission and their programs – I collaborate with the group and make personal donations to them every year to help them grow.
