Calion Smith

Educator, Calion Consulting

Calion is an expert and educator on the topic of dissociative identity disorder, a chronic mental health condition caused by severe childhood trauma. He believes it is essential for all mental health practitioners to know about, especially those working with childhood trauma survivors. There is a severe lack of training and expertise out there, and Calion aims to change that. His experience is based in studying research from the International Society for the Study of Dissociation and Trauma, plus lived experience with the condition. Calion is also a child trafficking survivor and is ultimately passionate about raising awareness for this, alongside breaking down mental health stigma.
