Title

We Need Creative Approaches to Trauma Therapy in Mental Health

Summary

Studies show almost 90% of people who access mental health services were exposed to serious trauma. As a former mental health nurse, I rarely saw the healthcare team work directly with a patients trauma history. This needs to change and we need to get creative. Traditional therapy has been helpful but new therapies such as psychedelics and trauma release techniques are showing a lot of promise. I'd like to write an exploratory article about this issue. I'll include interviews and research.
