Are you interested in sharing your experience as a CADI? Here are recent journalist/media queries:
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (May 2018): I’m a reporter in Las Vegas working on a story with a unique angle. I’m looking to tell the story of PTSD after an auto-pedestrian crash, but I want to speak to someone who’s accidentally hit and killed a person with his or her car, through no fault of their own. I’d like to talk to that person about the life changing trauma that comes after an event like this. I need someone to speak to me about his or her experience for my story. Would it be possible to connect to someone in Las Vegas through your organization? Thanks so much for your help.

Ireland (May, 2018): TV3 in Ireland is looking into the possibility of making a documentary about people who have killed somebody by accident. Our intention is to produce an informative and responsible programme which explores this difficult subject sensitively. To that end, we would like to hear from people who might be interested in participating. Ideally, there would be an Irish connection of some kind to your story. My contact details are below.
