A new program running out of Dubbo Neighbourhood Centre is tackling post-traumatic stress in people who have experienced the likes of sexual assault, bullying, domestic violence and military deployment. The HOPE (Helping Our People Evolve) program aims to treat post-traumatic stress but also prevent it.

Psychologists, psychiatrists and accredited mental health social workers make up the 10-member HOPE team.
