Welcome to Sangha Care Resources
A starting point for support and resources that are available to current and former students of SL.
As a gesture of support and with an understanding for the many emotions and issues that could arise for individuals as a result of reading the letter to SL of 14th July, 2017 we are listing some resources and helpful links.
These resources are not exhaustive and we do not endorse any of the listed organisations. We simply offer them as a starting point because we have either found them beneficial for ourselves, or because they come highly recommended through a couple of trusted charitable networks.
Please note that you may find the language and views in these resources as some what extreme. If you read them, we invite you to do so with an open, objective mind.
These organizations and websites are available to offer further support and information.
A website with articles and other resources concerning undue coercion and manipulation.
A support and referral organization for former members of high demand groups, relationships and cults
From Journey Free - a group dedicated to helping people transition out of harmful religions, recover from trauma, and rebuild their lives
