A note to crisis survivors
When we face an unexpected crisis or major life disruption, it can feel overwhelming and result in traumatic reactions. These reactions vary from person-to-person and event-to-event, based upon a number of variables, including:
- Physical health and abilities
- Emotional strength and capacit
- Mental health
- Spiritual activities and connections
- Resilience skills
- Family and trusted adult support
- Community engagement and support
- View of self
- View of life and future
- Coping skills
If you’re experiencing symptoms that are disrupting your functioning more than six weeks after a traumatic event, you might want to consider counseling. Regardless of your current circumstance, we want to remind you
of this truth:
You matter. Need help? Get help. You deserve it – and our world needs what only a healthy YOU can contribute!
