Trauma Q & A

What is trauma?

Trauma is an event or situation that is distressing, uncomfortable, scary, or dangerous. Trauma comes in many forms, some of which cause long-lasting effects when not addressed. If you or a loved one has symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other negative effects after undergoing trauma, professional help is beneficial.

What are examples of symptoms associated with trauma?

Symptoms that may result after experiencing trauma include:

  • Constant fear, worry, or panic
  • Distressing thoughts and memories
  • Avoiding trigger situations 
  • Flashbacks
  • Nightmares
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Poor sleep
  • Mood swings
  • Ongoing sadness
  • Feeling anxious
  • Getting startled easily 
  • Misusing drugs or alcohol
  • Low self-esteem
  • Thoughts of suicide

In addition to PTSD, you may have a higher risk of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, panic attacks, substance use disorder, or other mental health conditions.

We Are Hope partners with the Clark County Department of Family Services (DFS), the Department of Juvenile Justice Services (DJJS), and the Clark County School District (CCSD) to carry out life-changing programs.

What are the different types of trauma?

The following experiences may cause PTSD and long-lasting negative effects:

  • Physical, verbal, or sexual abuse
  • Neglect
  • Being in a car accident
  • Being a first responder 
  • Military combat
  • Natural disasters
  • Severe injuries
  • Bullying
  • Witnessing violence

Any situation that causes distress may classify as a traumatic experience. The good news is that the right treatment plan helps diminish debilitating symptoms and allows you to thrive.
