    i have gone through complex trauma . I am having trouble finding good support for trauma not just PTSD but complex trauma. What hope is there for complex trauma survivors? Especially young people. I have had multiple traumas basic childhood parental trauma, life trauma and medical traumatic experiences.

    Does anyone have experience in this? How do you live? I currently live with parents however this is re traumatising and want to find adequate accommodation. It is hard to find tailored case workers who deal with complex issues. I don’t want to go to crisis accommodation at all. Not working is having a harmful effect having a difficult mother, taking medicine I don’t want to take. Please advise

    Hello Hannerilana, and a warm welcome to the forums.

    I'm so sorry to hear from what you have told us, but I can definitely relate to complex trauma, but I've found that this may help you if you copy and paste this in your search bar Blue Knot Helpline on 1300 657 380 or who can provide support for people.

    Sane is also available and if you look at this site 'What hope is there for complex trauma survivors in Australia'.

    Having a difficult mother and you not wanting to take medication is something we'd to talk about, plus any accommodation.

    Hope to hear back from you.
