Six Supportive Steps: New campaign launch

To coincide with World Day of Remembrance, Road Trauma Support WA has launched a new six-week online campaign to help people who have lost loved ones support themselves or others during the holiday season.

This time of year can bring a range of emotions – anxiety, guilt, and painful feelings, mixed with positive or happy moments. Road Trauma Support WA wants to help people prepare for and cope with the holiday season and make sure West Australians know free, no-referral road trauma information, support and counselling are available all year.

The Six Supportive Stepscampaign uses actionable tips and strategies, with each week focusing on one of six supportive steps:

  • Remember
  • Acknowledge
  • Plan
  • Take time
  • Support
  • Act

Anyone can get involved in the campaign, and it’s as easy as following Road Trauma Support WA on Facebook and Twitter, then sharing and liking our weekly supportive tips. You can also download the Six Supportive Steps Digital Resources Kit and tailor your own articles and posts.

If you have experienced road trauma or lost a loved one to a road incident, our blog, Post-crash care: supporting road trauma grief, may help you support yourself or others during the holiday season.

For additional support, contact Road Trauma Support WA on 1300 004 814.
