Feeling emotionally numb? Easily startled? Symptoms of PTSD stem from traumatic events and these risk factors makes an individual vulnerable to develop PTSD. The most common factors leading to the development of PTSD include combat exposure, physical and mental abuse during childhood and sexual assault. Research studies show that children who are raised in a hostile family environment have high chances of suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. Many people and families tend to ignore early signs and symptoms of PTSD in children instead of ensuring that is doesn’t fully develop into PTSD. Signs and symptoms may include anxiety, depression, angry outbursts, memory problems and guilt which are the most common reactions to trauma. Children who are constantly exposed to mental abuse may develop PTSD or mental health issues which may even to lead to suicide.

When treating people with PTSD or people who have trauma, we recognise trauma is any experience that has an unfavourable impact. It can vary from being chosen last for a school group, to experiencing a home fire or a divorce. The manner in which a specific person experiences an event, and exactly what they state to themselves about it, can have long-term mental health issues. Other ongoing problems can include panic disorder, depression and substance abuse. Abuse is a kind of trauma that can be physical, mental, sexual, intellectual, spiritual or any mix of these. We ensure that the thoughts and feelings of the patient is treated with the upmost importance while providing treatment for PTSD.
