Ray Karam worked as a police officer in Sydney Central, Redfern and in country towns in Northern NSW. An accumulation of traumatic experiences led to Ray leaving the police force to seek support and rebuild his life. Ray shares his inspiring story, what helped him to rebuild from the grass roots up in order to support others who may have experienced similar trauma.
