Trauma Toggle will allow users to titrate language and triggering material to control their media consumption. With climate breakdown, COVID-19, political upheaval and worsening mental health, Trauma Toggle aims to increase citizen engagement, reducing news avoidance and vulnerability to predatory misinformation. Grace Quantock is combining real world clinical experience as a psychotherapeutic counsellor and will co-create with journalists working in the field, marginalised audiences and technological developers to create a news prototype that's trauma informed.
