Straight Up is created with young people who have lived in care. It’s part of the GOM Central Project.
If you want to learn more about trauma, here’s some good resources:
- Video | Trauma and the Brain
- Website |The impacts of trauma on mental health
- Website | Intergenerational trauma in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
- Video | What is trauma? The author of “The Body Keeps the Score” explains
If you want to get involved in GOM Central, or you just want to get in touch, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are leaving care soon, or have left recently, Post Care Support Services are here to help! They can support you with stuff like housing and grant applications, FOI requests, referrals, life skills, brokerage counselling, mental health and other issues.
GOM Central is funded by the Department of Child Protection and delivered by Relationships Australia SA’s Post Care Support Services. Straight Up is hosted by Brooke and Zhane.
This podcast was created on Kaurna and Peramangk Country. We wish to acknowledge the Kaurna and Peramangk peoples, and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians; their spiritual, physical, emotional, mental and economic connection to the Land and Seas. We acknowledge the original custodians of Australia and in doing so understand that their inherent Cultural and Spiritual beliefs continue to sustain the living People of each region.
