Most everyone has been through a stressful event in his or her life. When the event, or series of events, causes a lot of stress, it is called a traumatic event. Traumatic events are marked by a sense of horror, helplessness, serious injury, or the threat of serious injury or death. Traumatic events affect survivors, rescue workers, and the friends and relatives of victims who have been involved. They may also have an impact on people who have seen the event either firsthand or on television.
This health resource will teach you about coping with trauma, including:
- What are some common responses to trauma?
- What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, commonly known as PTSD?
- What can you do for yourself?
- What can you do for your child?
- When should you contact a doctor or mental health professional?
This brief, yet informative resource also lists a variety of resources for help and further information about coping with trauma, which include:
American Red Cross
Anxiety Disorders Association of America
National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
National Institute on Mental Health
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Alliance
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency
You may need to consider seeking professional help if your symptoms are severe enough during the first month to interfere a lot with your family, friends, and job. If you suspect that you or someone you know has PTSD talk with a health care provider or call your local mental health clinic.
Don’t let trauma overwhelm your life, take control today!
