Our minds are complex and intricately designed and while there’s great beauty in that, there is also great vulnerability. When we experience trauma, it can rewrite how we see the world, how we see others and how we see ourselves. Multiple studies have shown that trauma can fundamentally alter someone’s brain, causing them to struggle for years without realizing the underlying issue.
When trauma goes unrecognized in someone’s life, it can feel like a never-ending cycle of triggers and fear. But when we can understand it for what it is, there is great hope. Our minds can be healed and our stories can be rewritten.
Trauma is a very complicated, difficult topic, especially if it has gone unresolved for many years, but healing is possible. This curated collection of articles, broadcasts and resources will help you understand and navigate this area of mental health.
If you are concerned about yourself or someone you know, we encourage you to contact our care and counselling team at 1.800.661.9800. Our office hours are Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT.
