National Trauma Survivors Day
celebrate with us on May 17, 2023!
On Wednesday, May 17th the TSN community will celebrate National Trauma Survivors Day (NTSD). This celebration seeks to draw inspiration from and provide support to survivors of traumatic injuries and their caregivers, opening the road to their recovery from trauma. During this event, we encourage all those who support these patients to write them a note of inspiration to aid in the recovery process and to share this note via social media thereby creating one strong voice for recovery from injury.
Simply posting a message of hope and support by every one of us will create an unprecedented voice of compassion and solidarity from the trauma community on behalf of our patients and their families.
You can participate in any of the ways below!
Print this sign and write your words of advice or inspiration.
If you already have a TSN t-shirt, send us a picture of you in it. We'd love to highlight you on TSN social media!
Upload the sign to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with #TraumaSurvivorsDay and #NTSD
