"Getting better & moving on": a new online guide dedicated to the mental health of survivors

Chayn, a 2018 Kering Foundation Awards Laureate, has come out with a new resource for survivors of violence, in addition to their online guides “Do It Yourself Online Safety” to help victims circumvent online tracking from abusers and “How to Build Your Own Domestic Violence Case Without A Lawyer”.

"Getting better & moving on" is an intersectional mental wellbeing guide for anyone having gone through abuse. It helps survivors of violence understand the emotions they are experiencing, recognize that their feelings are the result of abuse and it also provides guidance to obtain help, through advice and recommendations from experts.

Like all Chayn resources, “Getting better & moving on” was written by survivors, their family and friends, as well as mental health professionals. This publication is free and under open license for any organization to use and share with their networks.
