RiSE QLD was founded in 2014 by Bronwyn Rees armed with a passion for knowledge, asking the right questions and seeking solutions that work. “Many of us who have experienced trauma and or adversity have no idea how these toxic experiences have affected us our children and future generations.”
RiSE QLD Inc. is proud to be part of a global movement among paediatricians, therapists, educators and communities, to treat and prevent toxic stress. Now understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, using cutting edge science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease.“The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”
