The Impact Campaign

Ghosthunter brings to light the devastating impact and often ongoing complex issues associated with childhood trauma including mental health issues, homelessness, relationship problems, and family violence. It also depicts the journey to recovery and healing, and highlights the resilience and resourcefulness of survivors. The film is a powerful case study for professionals working in the sector who want to provide trauma-informed training, educate university students, and inform the general public.

Working closely with our core campaign partners, we will use the film as a key tool to raise awareness, build capacity for services, and provide trauma-informed training across the entire sector.
