Chances are you if you’ve ever experienced a traumatic event, it left you feeling afraid, anxious, sad/ depressed, and even alone. These symptoms can greatly impact your ability to function daily. If this sounds familiar, you are likely a survivor of trauma, and you are not alone.
First, let’s discuss trauma more in-depth. What is trauma? When you experience a single or repeated traumatic event, you may have an immediate or delayed response with mental, emotional, and physical symptoms. Your symptoms may subside as time passes or you may have lasting psychological issues like PTSD stemming from your trauma.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 61 percent of men and 51 percent of women report exposure to at least one lifetime traumatic event, and 90 percent of clients in public behavioral health care settings have experienced trauma in the US.
