About Well-being

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]“Recovery and resilience do not reflect simply the absence of problematic symptoms, but rather a zest for life; a positive conceptualisation of ones self; the ability to form positive, supportive, and safe relationships; and the ability to achieve a fulfilling quality of life.” (McMackin et al 2012)

This section details some things that you can do to improve your health and well-being. Research tells us that having these building blocks in place leads to enhanced quality of life.

Our decision to foreground well-being is based on a knowledge that living a fulfilling, connected, active life is possible after sexual abuse and we do not wish to accept a lesser goal for all those whom we live and work with.

The Well-being section is broken up into a number of different sections, each with information and resources that you are encouraged to make use of.

Building connections

Physical well-being

Learning and thinking

Living by your values



There is no one path to health and well-being. We encourage you to become familiar with what each section has to offer and to work on establishing a routine that works best for you.

Some aspects of this section might take perseverance. By placing a focus on doing things that support your well-being, there is no suggestion that problems will just disappear – that’s not possible. It is about building solid foundations that can help you better deal with problems when they do arise and keep you on track for living the kind of life you want to live.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]We invite you to check it out – work your way through the app and become familiar with what each section has to offer.
