26 October 2023, Blue Knot Day.

As a member and supporter of the Blue Knot Foundation. We invite you to ‘wear a blue knot’

As life goes on, we are faced with challenges that
Complex trauma, especially from childhood often has multiple impacts including low self-esteem, difficulties with relationships, completing an education, holding down a job, and challenges with mental and physical health. With so many adult Australians impacted, chances are either you or someone you know has been directly affected and have been left trying to manage the ongoing impacts of their trauma on a daily basis. When communities are more trauma-informed and show their support, survivors receive greater understanding and compassion to support their recovery.How You Can Get Involved and Show Your SupportThis Blue Knot Day we are asking you to show your support by wearing a Blue Knot to help raise awareness, and show you are part of our trauma-informed community. Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Wear a blue knot and show you are part of the Blue Knot trauma-informed community.
  • Get creative and make your own blue knot to wear.
  • You can also purchase a blue knot pin or blue knot bracelet from the online Blue Knot shop. All proceeds help Blue Knot in its work in supporting survivors of complex trauma.
  • Hold an event, help raise funds, and share Blue Knot Day resources to help educate the community about being trauma-informed, and build trauma-informed community.
  • Make a donation to help us support more adult survivors of complex trauma
  • Share the pre-prepared social tiles which can be downloaded
