One of the leading causes of death worldwide, concerning mental health, is trauma and traumatic injury. The constant resurfacing and mental reliving of a particularly harrowing incident can take a severe toll on those experiencing this condition, with death due to traumatic injury accounting for 10% of all demises between the ages of 5 and 44. Not only is this figure a wake-up call to reach out to those undergoing trauma and PTSD, but also an indication of the amount society is losing in terms of productivity and gaining in terms of premature death and disabilities, due to the age group that’s majorly inflicted.
Though most people immediately tend to associate trauma and PTSD with war veterans, it can develop equally strongly in young children and adults due to a range of causes, such as abuse, accidents, domestic violence, illnesses, and injuries, witnessing the death of a loved one (or ones) and even natural disasters. People experiencing trauma often display emotional instability, disorientation, withdrawal from society, and in some cases, strong anxiety that manifests in the form of insomnia, bad dreams, irritability and mood swings. Additionally, it may manifest physically in the form of fatigue, and increase in the heart rate, paleness, lethargy and panic attacks where the patient cannot control their actions or body’s reactions. One of the most difficult parts of dealing with trauma is that there is no telling how long it will take to overcome as well as when it may manifest; it may appear days, months or years after the incident and take just as much time to heal.
