Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”

What is trauma? Trauma is an emotional response resulting from a disturbing, upsetting, or life-changing event. Trauma can be one event or many events that happened to you. The effects of trauma can heavily influence a person’s mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Many people are dealing with trauma but do not understand that trauma is the underlying issue. Traumatic events can also lead to post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape, or natural disaster. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships, and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea.
