Trauma Q & A

What is trauma?

Trauma refers to any event that has a significant impact on your psychological or emotional well-being. This may include a car accident, death of a close family member, or the trauma of war combat. Childhood abuse and neglect are also considered traumatic events with lifelong consequences.

It’s normal to feel afraid or stressed after a traumatic event. However, if your feelings interfere with your everyday life or how you feel about yourself, then you may need professional help from the team at Creative C are. Getting the treatment you need early on after a traumatic event may help prevent long-term mental health issues.

  • Denial or disbelief
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Moodiness
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Sadness or hopelessness

These are all normal symptoms you may experience after trauma. However, your symptoms should disappear within a few days. If your symptoms aren’t improving, contact the team at Creative Care for help.

What is PTSD?

PTSD is a mental health condition that develops after a traumatic event or experience. PTSD causes a range of symptoms, such as flashbacks, avoidance, and mood swings, that can affect your day-to-day activities.
