WHOLE

In the language of AIM, being WHOLE includes finding a positive sense of wellbeing, being in a safe place [both physically and emotionally], feeling peaceful and letting go of hurt.

Often this isn't an easy journey, but through different types of support and help, finding the the steps towards being WHOLE is possible.

But this isn't some distant idea, there are many things that can be put in place today to increase your sense of positive wellbeing. On this page we have a few resources for you to explore as well as great contact points if you're having a tough time right now.

"What's really amazing is when we are at our lowest points, feeling defeated and broken, we are able to mend and feel whole again"
