A service for young people
The Frankie service aims to prevent trauma from turning into poor mental health. The service is inspired by Frankie, an adult survivor of child sexual abuse who is now in her early 20’s. Frankie was considered a happy child, ‘gifted and talented’ until being sexually abused at a young age, and over a number of years by a family friend. Frankie says she was not offered trauma support and was eventually sectioned under the Mental Health Act. Frankie believes that had her trauma been identified earlier and she had been supported with it therapeutically, she would have coped and recovered better.
