Post Traumatic Stress

Post Traumatic Stress

Post traumatic stress can occur as a result of any traumatic incident. That can be anything that is out of the ordinary or deeply distressing to someone such as an accident, a fire or witnessing a traumatic event such as a death. It can also be large scale such as major disasters.

Common reactions to such events include:

  • Re-living the trauma in your mind
  • Avoiding things associated with the trauma.
  • Feeling more tense, irritable or over-alert than usual.
  • Feeling depressed.
