    "I've spent the 16 years since I left the military trying to be small, trying to hide away. Here, I'm starting to feel like I can let it out. Let go." (Participant, Coming Home)
    Coming Home is a creative programme supporting veterans and families affected by complex trauma to engage with the arts and access new ways of regulating and expressing emotions. Initial feedback suggests that this programme has significant potential as a way of reconnecting veterans and families with their community and addressing the “moral injury” of war (Litz, Shay et al). Participants report a shift in feelings of guilt and shame, improved sense of connectedness and an increase in hope for the future.
