ASSIST Trauma Care

Organisation name
ASSIST Trauma Care
Description
Every one of us, at some time in our lives, will experience some form of trauma.

Hopefully, although these episodes are painful and distressing, we will be able to cope with them without these experiences causing us lasting damage.

Occasionally, however, we may encounter a trauma so great that feelings of intense fear, terror and helplessness occur, and as a result we may develop 'Post Traumatic Stress Disorder'.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is defined as an illness or disorder which is triggered by an emotionally distressing event which is outside the range of normal human experience.

Post Traumatic Stress is no respecter of age, sex or culture, and can, given specific circumstances, affect anyone at any time.

In some cases the effects of the disorder may last for years and be devastating to both those who suffer and to their families.

Assist recognises that many individuals and their families/carers may need support as they struggle to come to terms with the effect that P.T.S.D has on their lives and the lives of their loved ones.
