PTSD can make you feel disconnected from others. You may be tempted to withdraw from social activities and your loved ones. But it’s important to stay connected to life and the people who care about you. You don’t have to talk about the trauma if you don’t want to, but the caring support and companionship of others is vital to your recovery.

Remember that you are never alone! Join Code 9's private group to help you feel less isolated and alone and also provide invaluable information on how to cope with symptoms and work towards recovery.

Code 9 also offers low key catch-up coffee meet-ups where you can organise to get together with other members in your area for a quick coffee or come to our peer to peer support nights to gain further insight and support.
