After Trauma – resource for survivors of traumatic injury

After Trauma
After Trauma is a website that connects and supports survivors of traumatic injury and their families.
After Trauma aims to provide a community for patients and families to rebuild lives and support each other after experiencing a traumatic injury. The website also contains information and resources to help survivors and families on the recovery journey.
After Trauma is supported and maintained by the Centre for Trauma Sciences in London.  However, the information provided has come from clinicians and support services working in trauma services around the UK.

ICUsteps was founded in 2005 by ex-patients, their relatives and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) staff to support patients and their families through the long road to recovery from critical illness.
The charity aims are to:

support patients and relatives affected by critical illness,
promote recognition of the physical and psychological consequences of critical illness through education of the medical profession and the general public, and
encourage research into treatment and the prevention of these issues.

ICUsteps is the United Kingdom’s only support group for people who have been affected by critical illness and has helped many former patients, their relatives and medical staff from organisations around the world.
