The Healthwatch Essex Trauma Ambassador Group invite you to contribute to their exhibition later this year, where they will be showing how people with lived experience of trauma, express themselves.

Expressing yourself is an important part of living with the effects of trauma, and Healthwatch Essex would love to see your paintings, drawings, poems, short stories, photography, textile work, crafts, make up, songs or any other media that you use to express your feelings, emotions and experiences.

They will be showing a range of exhibits in different venues across the county to help raise awareness of the impact and complexity of trauma. If you would like your exhibit to be included, you can do so anonymously if you prefer.

If there is something which you would like to share with Healthwatch Essex, or if you would like to find out more, please get in touch by emailing
